The wine is typical of the variety. Tar and roses feature strongly. The colour is darker than is typical of Barolo, pointing to quite concentrated dark cherry fruit. However, the fruit has now faded somewhat. Savoury flavours dominate, and in particular the firm and very dry tannins. The finish is long.
This is an outstanding wine, suited to those who like Barolo. It needs food, in particular protein, and is best drunk now.
