Tasting Note:

A wine made in minute quantities by Elio Altare from Marco Marengo’s vines. A more svelte, velvety wine than Elio’s Arborina without the same initial burst of energy but more haunting perhaps; really intense long, taut, vivid and crisp, great minerals with a truffly richness too, lovely juicy berry flavours, absolutely stunning. Considerably fruitier and more open in its fourth year than the 2004 at the same stage.
