This structured Barolo is still closed but already displays its impressive Serralunga d'Alba pedigree. It delivers crushed black cherry flavors layered with licorice, black pepper, clove, alpine herbs and balsamic notes alongside assertive but noble tannins and brisk acidity. It's well balanced but needs time to develop complexity. Drink 2025–2045.
