Tasting :  

"Subtle, elegant and refined. Sweet red cherries, flowers, herbs and mint are some of the nuances that emerge from this juicy, forward Barolo. Fine-grained, silky tannins frame the fragrant finish. The aromas and flavors are just a touch forward, but that should not pose any significant issues in a wine meant to be enjoyed upon release. This is a gorgeous, entry-level Barolo graced with exquisite elegance and class. Fine-grained tannins frame the silky, fragrant finish. " -AG Wine Advocate -R. Parker
