What a fantastic nose to this wine with aromas of roses, blackberries, strawberries and orange peel. Full-bodied, tight and focused with firm and racy tannins. It really shows a laser-guided backbone of acidity and tannin.
...robust and juicy expression...silky and smooth with bright aromas of wild berry, smoke, grilled herb and white truffle. These aromas are delivered with a steady hand. This is a finely textured expression that offers ample length and persistence.
Black-skinned fruit, iris, espresso, dark spice and a balsamic note all meld together in the glass along with a whiff of chopped herb. The firmly structured palate doles out ripe black cherry, raspberry jam, toast, roasted coffee bean and a hint of oak-driven spice alongside fine-grained tannins.
This red starts out with cherry, strawberry and floral notes, adding leather, underbrush and tobacco through the finish.
Barolo commune. Strong mushroom nose. Very friendly and stolid and straightforward. Savoury.
