Garnet red with orange reflections. The nose is intense and pleasant, with typical ripe fruit notes, prune jam, dried roses, and spices. The wine is dry, warm, full-bodied, tannic, fresh, and persistent.
Pairs well with red meats and cheeses.
"Love the white truffle aromas, with hints of red fruits and Spanish cedar. Full bodied, with ultra-fine tannins and a long, long finish. This is a majestic young wine. So balanced and beautiful now but will age wonderfully. This is fabulous for a standard Barolo. Best after 2013."
"Offering a deep well of plum, cherry, licorice and leather flavors, this is bright and fresh, with firm, well-integrated tannins. A chewy style, balanced with sweet fruit. Excellent length. Best from 2014 through 2028."
