Made from dried Nebbiolo grapes, this full-bodied wine opens with aromas of spiced plum, dried flower, vanilla and nutmeg. The monolithic palate offers steeped plum, raisins, anisette, coffee and mocha alongside velvety tannins and the warmth of alcohol. The fruit is starting to dry up on this, so best to drink up over the next few years.
