This Barolo is a rather rich ruby red with orange reflections. The nose expresses balsamic and spice characteristics with clear hints of forest floor and menthol and ethereal touches of chocolate and tobacco. Elegant and silky in the mouth with a rich, dense structure that persists to the long, harmonious finish.

A fresh, licorice-, leather- and eucalyptus-scented red, balanced and enticing, though this will need a few years to sort out the beefy tannins. The firm, dry finish is long, evoking cherry, tobacco and mineral notes. Think braised beef. Best from 2019 through 2033. 150 cases imported.

Classic Nebbiolo aromas of red berry, underbrush, tilled soil, aromatic herb and spice lead the nose. The bracing palate offers dried black cherry, anisette, mocha, toast and grilled herb alongside extremely assertive tannins and brisk acidity. Drink 2019-2031.
