These well-draining conditions add to the softness and concentrated aromatic intensity of Nebbiolo. In fact, the bouquet here brings us a medley of red and purple fruits with some ripe blackberry and plum. It shows a hint of pretty cherry sweetness with spice, tobacco and candied licorice. The mouthfeel is full and generous, and this supple Barolo wraps smoothly and luxuriously over the palate. Some 9,100 bottles were made.- ML

Accents of iron, tobacco and tar add complexity, and this is balanced and long on the finish.

Accents of iron, tobacco and tar add complexity, and this is balanced and long on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2045. 200 cases imported. — BS
