The vineyards where this Riserva originates are located at an altitude of between 200 and 280 metres above sea level. The soils contain Sant'Agata Fossil marls and roughly textured clay.
COLOUR: ruby red shading to garnet.
BOUQUET: intense and remarkably complex, with nuances of ripe black and red fruits Showing spices like black pepper and cloves.
PALATE: dry and warm, with impressive body and texture. The long lingering finish exhibits ripe red and black fruits and a remarkable balsamic note.
Still an elegant, fresh Barbaresco with strawberry, tar and hazelnut aromas and flavors, in a subtle, polished package. Medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. This is showing really well and drinking beautiful. Racy. Really well done, especially for the vintage. 500 cases made. Drink or hold.
