Pronounced, garnet red. The fine, elegant nose on the Arborina is profumed with fruity notes of ripe cherry, blackberry, and vanilla. Very intensely flavored, the mouth-feel here is warm, soft, and round, with thick and sweet tannins complimented by a long and pleasant finish. This wine is a match for heartier fare, for example elaborate meat dishes, game, or Piedmont aged cheeses.

Wine SpectatorAromas of raspberry jam and porcini follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Rich and structured. One of the masters of Barolo, even in a hot year such as 2003. Best after 2010.
