This Barolo has an ethereal, strong, and persistent scent of violet, cherry, spices (cinnamon, cloves), vanilla, and leather.
Brilliant, garnet red, good intensity, with slight garnet/orange highlights.
Dry, warm, with generous body, robust and suitably tannic but not too austere, smooth, balanced, with an intense and persistent finish characterized by sensations reminiscent of the bouquet.
Red meat course, game, and hard or matured cheese. Highly recommended with food enriched with truffles.
