Tasting Note

This Barolo has a structure more oriented towards freshness and drinkability. On the nose, a persuasive aromatic complexity with notes of ripe red and purple fruit. Taste notes are harmonious and balanced with the right acidity that contrasts freshness and flavor. It is suitable for long aging in bottles.
