The colour is ruby-red with garnet highlights; on the nose ripe plums, bilberries and violets merge harmoniously with hints of liquorice, cinnamon and tobacco. Well-structured tannins and intense fruit fill the mouth with a closely-packed, full flavour.

Type: Red Wine Maturation Potential: 15 yrs+
Origin: Piedmont Appellation: Barolo DOCG

Winemaker's comments:

Ruby-red with garnet highlight. Its delicate but intense nose is wide, with clear-cut overtones of withered roses, violets, tobacco, underbrush, spices, and a slight touch of vanilla. Dense, closely-woven tannins show on the palate, which starts out smooth, almost velvety, and then bursts with fruit, nicely balanced by a sharp freshness. Long aftertaste packed with flavour.

Made from Barbera grapes grown on the hills around Asti, Piedmont. Matured in new and second passage French oak for 12 months, intense and rich but balanced with sweet spicy notes and a soft, attractive flavour.

Winemaker's comments:

The colour is a clear, ruby-red wine with violet highlights. Its vinous bouquet is fruity, very intense and rather attractive and persistent. Nicely dry, well-balanced and velvety, with clear flavours of black cherry and liquorice, subtle overtones of prune and black pepper and a pleasant, light aftertaste of almonds.

Straw-yellow colour with a greenish hue. Subtle, persistent, scent of green apples and white peaches against an elegant mineral background. On the palate, complex, clean, elegant and concentrated, with minerals and almonds returning in a harmonic finish.
