Despite the excessively hot vintage, this is a compelling riserva from one of La Morra's top vineyards, crafted by a master Barolo maker. The fragrance shows ripe plum and floral notes, while the palate delivers ripe black fruit laced with cinnamon and Alpine herbs. With its lovely depth and balance, this is almost ready now.
