Tasting Note:

Expansive dark and red fruit character, notes of earth, sweet spice, mineral and salt. A touch surly and reticent, as Brunate should be, but with a little aeration the flavours explode out of the glass. The wine is powerful but the flavours are clearly defined and fresh, with a gentle austerity providing some backbone. One of the top Cru vineyards of Barolo, situated high up in the La Morra commune. A touch more new oak is used for this (40%) than the Bricco Viole because of the extra power of the Brunate wines, however the extra influence of oak on the flavour itself is minimal.
