There’s such purity of fruit to this with both dried and ripe strawberries and citrus rind. It’s full-bodied and structured with layers of ripe tannins that are fine and polished. Tight at the end. Give this two or three years to open and soften. Try in 2024.

Designation: Barolo D.O.C.G.

Grapes: 100% Nebbiolo

Winemaking: The grapes are selected from very important small vineyards in the Barolo region. The vines are between 10 and 43 years old, planted in a clay-limestone soil and trained with the Guyot system. The average density is roughly 4,500 plants per hectare. All the different single vineyards are vinified and aged separately with slightly different processes to highlight the typical characteristics of each “terroir”.

Aging: The wine is aged for about 30 months in oak casks and barriques; all parcels are then carefully blended before bottling.

Description: On the nose explosive, opulent, charming and immediate. Hints of plum, ripe red and black cherry, blackberry, sour cherry, rose petals and tobacco. On the palate it is classic, rich, powerful, with notes of Alpine herbs and a leather finish. Tannins are already well-integrated.

Food pairings: Stewed meats, wild game, read meats and cheeses.
