Here's a Barolo from the classic school, with a multifaceted, intense fragrance of underbrush, truffle and porcini mushroom, along with whiffs of woodland berries and Alpine herbs. The palate delivers delicious berry, white pepper, mint and thyme notes, along with brooding tannins that need time to unwind. Drink 2016–2024.
