Arione shows its Serralunga d'Alba pedigree via classic aromas of black cherry, leather, truffle and rose petal. The palate delivers lush wild-cherry flavors and hints of truffle, mint and the vineyard's hallmark licorice. It's beautifully balanced, with firm but ripe tannins and just enough freshness, and is simply a gorgeous Barolo.
