Tasting Notes:
Although from relatively young vines, this Roero is as good as many Barolo and Barbaresco wines that command significantly higher prices. It is elegant yet has very good concentration and the wood is expertly integrated - looking back at old notes, I see Fabrizio changes his wood regime according to the vintage. Subtleties abound in this delicious wine which is already approachable but has a good life ahead.

2014 to 2019
Cépagement:
100% Nebbiolo (vines 15-20 years)

ABV:
14.5%
Critic Reviews:
"Smooth and juicy. Hints of oaky spices and vanilla complement rich and cherry, tarry tannins and fresh herbal nuances. A serious wine that's still young." 90/100 (Ian d'Agata, Decanter)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
