Unusually ripe for the vintage, this structured Barolo opens with aromas of tilled earth, leather and mature black fruit. The rich palate offers succulent red and black cherry layered with baking spices and balsamic notes alongside firm tannins and softer acidity than many others from the vintage. It's already accessible but will age through 2024 or longer.
