Tasting Note:

A serious, backboned Barolo that, despite its solid and compact tannic structure, offers refreshing fruit and clearly delineated flavours. Peppery dark berries washed over salts and stones with a cleansing chalkiness to the finish and a warming glow of sweet spice, all of which are set in a steadying but silky tannic framework.
