Rose petal, woodland berry, new leather and wild herb aromas demonstrate its Nebbiolo pedigree. Youthfully austere but loaded with finesse, the full-bodied palate delivers red cherry, cranberry, white pepper and star anise set against firm fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity. This is a classic Barolo that needs time to come around and will evolve gracefully for decades. Drink 2025–2043.
