From one of the most celebrated vineyard sites in Barbaresco, this unfolds with a captivating fragrance of red rose and blue flower accented with ripples of perfumed berry, tilled earth, nectarine zest and balsamic herbs. The juicy palate delivers ripe Morello cherry, black pepper, mint, balsamic herbs and a hint of espresso supported by a backbone of firm tannins. Drink 2016–2026.
