Warm, open, sensuous nose with aromas of fresh red and dried fruits, leather, brown spices and delicate floral notes. The palate is generous, supple and approachable, combining freshness and youth with complexity, spice and firm but fine-grained tannins. Taut acidity gives balance on the long, nuanced finish. Unusually forward for Barolo of this quality thanks to an exceptional vintage. A wine of depth and class which will develop over 20 years or more.
