Aged in Slavonian casks, this opens with classic Nebbiolo aromas of rose, violet, perfumed berry and baking spice. The juicy palate doles out ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry, licorice and white pepper while fresh acidity and firm, velvety tannins provide balance. It's already approachable but hold for more complexity. Drink 2017–2027.
