Tasting Note:

Much darker in profile than the estate’s other Barolos. A cooling, earthy “sous bois” nose followed by compact, deep and powerful flavours on the palate. Velvety and full in the mouth. Layered, bold rich flavours of earth, orange peel, bramble and iodine. There is a deep-lying force and undertow here driving the big flavours along. A baritone Barolo that needs many years to unfurl. From a prime south-facing parcel at the top of the hill, within one of the great historic Crus of Barolo. Aged for 30 months in large used oak casks followed by two years in bottle before release.
