Classically crafted, this impressive wine opens with alluring Nebbiolo aromas of mature dark berry, pine forest, leather, aromatic herb, baking spice and an earthy whiff of game. The full-bodied palate delivers juicy wild cherry, black raspberry, licorice, clove and tobacco alongside firm, refined tannins. It's already tempting but hold to let it fully develop. Drink 2018–2031.
