Garnet-red in color with ruby shades. An intense perfume with clean scents of spices, vanilla, roasted hazelnuts, licorices, cacao and wild rose. A full, elegant flavor, austere and good-bodied, with recurring olfactory sensations. The hints of spices and of wood blend perfectly. Thanks to its big structure, this wine pairs exceptionally well with main courses of red meats, braised dishes and game in general. An ideal accompaniment for cheeses. Food Pairings: This wine is well matched with traditional Langhe egg pasta, Tajarin, ravioli, red meat dishes, stews, braised meats and game. It is also the ideal companion for sheep and goat's milk and mildly-aged cheeses.

Licorice, menthol, red berry and clove aromas carry over to the taut palate along with a tobacco note. Tightly wound fine-grained tannins provide firm support. Drink 2019-2027.

The 2012 Barolo Tradizione is a dark and succulent expression of Nebbiolo from a warm vintage. Plum fruit, tart cherry, balsam herb and black licorice rise from the bouquet with marked intensity. The wine is structured and firm with broad flavors that spread far over the palate. This wine is recommended for near and medium-term consumption.
