Made with dried Nebbiolo grapes grown in high mountain vineyards, this robust wine opens with aromas of ripe black fruit, spicy plum cake, Alpine herbs and a hint of prune. The full-bodied palate doles out black cherries marinated in spirits, clove, savory herb and ground black pepper alongside assertive but velvety tannins.
