Tasting Note:

Another Barolo making its debut here. Enrico bought the plot in 2008 and re-worked the soil, planting the vineyard in 2010 with a massale selection from across the estate. So, despite their young age, the vines here are producing less bunches and smaller grapes than under the previous ownership. It is an open and windy site, steep and south facing. The wine is powerful but compact. Tannic, very tight-knit chalky tannins. Intense but svelte dark berry, spice and blood orange flavours. There is also tremendous mineral, saline energy and complexity completing the picture. Driven, toned and muscular but very accomplished.
