Made from a blend of top vineyard sites in Verduno, this balanced Barolo has a wonderful fragrance of woodland berries, new leather, intense balsamic notes and menthol. The smooth palate weaves together juicy red cherry, herbs, sweet spices and mineral notes alongside velvety, enveloping tannins and brisk acidity. Drink 2020–2040.
