This stunning Barolo hails from the village of Verduno. Its gorgeous floral fragrance features balsamic herbs and orange peel. The palate is rich but elegant, with sweet black cherry fruit layered with spice and a hint of vanilla. It's silky smooth already, but will gain more complexity over the next few years.
