Tasting Note:

A beautiful wine. Elegantly intense. Long bright red fruits. So persistent, yet dainty and dancing too. Ethereal flavours of alpine strawberries and herbs with balsamic overtones. This has a certain generosity and lots of charm but make no mistake this is a serious if very graceful Barolo. A class act. From a prime mid slope part of the hill facing south west, situated between 340 and 320 metres above sea level. Twenty day post-fermentation skin contact precede ageing for 24 months in used 30hl slavonian oak casks.
