A traditional Barolo, it is garnet red with ruby highlights. On the nose it is intense, with over-blown rose, violet and forest undergrowth nuances, cherries in alcohol, liquorice, truffle and tobacco aromas. It is an elegant, balanced wine with a complex palate, considerable body and good acidity. The noble wine par excellence, it continues to evolve for at least 20 years after the harvest. Food Pairings: Red meat based, braised dishes and game, aged cheeses. Excellent with the traditional dishes of the Langhe.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of camphor, chopped mint, leather and wild berry lead the nose. The palate offers tart red cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and an earthy hint of game alongside austere tannins that clench the finish. Give the tannins a few more years to unwind then drink up.
