Tasting Note:

Rich and aromatic dark, sticky-sweet ripe fruits with headily scented aromatics. In and amongst the fruit there are hints of vanilla pod and dried flower, with a strong binding tannic structure. Ripe intense and an adolescent but clearly a very promising one. A blend of Nebbiolo from Arborina and Barbera from Larigi, aged in 100% new oak barriques for 18 months. On average 3000 bottles are produced each year.
