This classically crafted Barolo has a balsamic fragrance of eucalyptus, thyme and bay leaf, with hints of rose and leather. The palate delivers wild cherry and mint flavors that show layers of depth. With its firm, ripe tannins and fresh acidity, this is already enjoyable, but will age well for a decade or more.
