Sweet, persistent strawberry fruit with amazing elegance - quite feminine for Barolo but very long. Big, chewy tannins and a long finish of ripe red fruits. Opening up well after ten years, this will continue to develop and drink well over its second decade.

"This elegant Barolo delivers both intensity and complexity thanks to its pure berry aromas and tones of cola, white licorice, tar, wet river stone, dried herb and cedar wood. Power and firm tannins suggest this wine would be best consumed 10 years from now. -ML" 91/100 (WineEnthusiast.com 09/12)
"Surprisingly soft, feminine and bright with touches of violet, ginger and vanilla"
