Elegant and fragrant, this radiant wine opens with classic Nebbiolo aromas of forest floor, crushed herb, dried rose, wild berry and a whiff of new leather. The focused, ethereal palate sneaks up on you, offering red cherry, spiced cranberry, wild strawberry and licorice alongside firm, refined tannins. Bright acidity lends balance, energy and tension. It's still youthfully austere so give it time to develop even more complexity. Drink 2023–2033.
