This Barolo shows ripe black cherry and plum aromas with spice undertones. The concentrated palate shows dark cherry, white pepper, mint and menthol. It has a delicious creamy texture and big, brooding tannins. While this will evolve nicely for the next few years, it's a tad shy on acidity so don't lay it down for ages.
