Made with 90% Nebbiolo and 10% Vespolina, this elegantly structured red offers a fragrance of crushed rose, wild berry, tilled soil, baking spice and iron. The sleek, focused palate boasts juicy red cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and white pepper backed up by a vein of energizing mineral. Bright acidity and polished tannins provide balance. Drink through 2017–2030.
