Tasting Note:

Fleshy and well-padded. Bursting with those distinctively “La Morra” plump and juicy red berry fruits. Wholesome and full but leaves your mouth clean and fresh. The most muscular of the Altare Barolos but lots of fruit to go with it, alongside a savoury complexity of woody herbs and undergrowth. A clay-dominated south to south east facing amphitheatre in the commune of Annunziata La Morra. Aged for 24 months in 20% new oak.
