This offering comes from one of Barolo's top producers and one of the best vineyard areas in the entire denomination. It delivers classic Nebbiolo sensations of ripe black cherry, fleshy raspberry and wild strawberry accented by white pepper, cinnamon, leather and uplifting mineral notes. With firm but polished tannins and bright acidity, it's already accessible, but will develop for decades. Drink 2020–2040.
