Ruby red with garnet reflections. The bouquet is rich and complex, with good persistence and hints of lavender which is followed by notes of leather and tobacco. The taste is balanced, elegant, pleasantly tannic, with a long, lingering finish.
"Iron and tea notes augment the cherry, strawberry, licorice and tar flavors in this elegant yet intense Barolo. Has purity and freshness, with a resonance to the tobacco and spice aftertaste."
"From the Rocche dell'Annunziata subzone, this well-priced Barolo offers beautifully vibrant aromas of cherry cola, chopped mint, violets and light shadings of exotic spice. In the mouth, it sports a compact, polished texture."
