Tasting Note:

This opens with alluring, fragrant red fruit, echoed on the palate with crispy, juicy and ripe wild red berries sewn together by a fine thread of tannins. Even-keeled, charming, and built on solid foundations. Since losing the La Morra component of this vineyard they are now down to a production of only 8,000 bottles (from 12,000.) A blend of fruit from Barolo, (Sarmassa) Serralunga and Castiglione Falletto. Aged for 24 months in 20 percent new oak.
