Classic Nebbiolo aromas of woodland berry, rose petal, iris, pipe tobacco and an earthy whiff of new leather make for a compelling fragrance. The polished structured palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and baking spice set against firm fine-grained tannins. Bright acidity gives it balance and tension. Drink 2022–2032.
