Tasting Note:

From the middle part of the Albesani vineyard, the steepest part of the hill, and exclusively from old vines planted in 1948 from the original Nebbiolo michet clone. Ageing is for 30 months in large casks. Barely more than a 1000 bottles are made in only the best vintages. Powerful and dark in initially, hints of liquorice, asian spice and musk, then the red fruit, blossom and roses start to shine through. Explosive on entry but there is great persistence and finesse too. Long, layered silky flavours. Complete seduction.
