Polished and structured, this opens with aromas of crushed violets, red berry, leather and intense balsamic notes. The delicious palate is surprisingly approachable for a Barolo from Serralunga, delivering succulent wild cherry, cocoa, clove, and sage alongside big, velvety tannins. Hold for complexity. Drink after 2020.
