Classic Nebbiolo aromas of wild red berry, forest floor, rose and new leather fill the glass. The taut full-bodied palate delivers crushed Morello cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and a hint of tobacco framed in firm refined tannins. Fresh acidity lends balance. It's already delicious but hold for even more complexity. Drink 2020–2030.
