You'll find scents of red berry, chopped herb, clove and a balsamic note on this fragrant Nebbiolo, Vespolina and Croatina blend. The luminous palate delivers ripe cherry, juicy strawberry, white pepper, and menthol underscored by a mineral vein. It's elegant and intense but still austere at this stage, with a firm tannic backbone. Drink 2018–2031.
