This classically styled Barolo from one of the denomination's most storied houses shows archetypal Nebbiolo scents of dried rose petal, eucalyptus and hints of leather and berry. The palate delivers cassis and truffle notes, with layers of Alpine herbs. While tannic, the wine is surprisingly forward.
