Classic Nebbiolo aromas of wild berry, aromatic herb, tilled soil and a balsamic note slowly emerge on this structured red. The focused, full-bodied palate offers wild cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon, white pepper, anise and mint alongside assertive tannins and bright acidity. It needs to come together but already boasts finesse and complexity. Drink 2019–2031.
