This Barolo is deep garnet red in colour, with a long-lasting bouquet clearly showing spices, accompanied by characteristic violet and wild fruit overtones.
The taste is elegant and full-bodied, with soft, mouth-filling tannins.
The variety’s typical qualities are confirmed as a result of the vintage, tannic balance and traditional ageing in large casks.
