The wines coming from the different vineyards are aged separately in 40, 60 and 75 –hectolitre Slavonian and Austrian oak barrels for 30 months. The wines are blended in the spring, then bottled at the end of the summer and aged in the bottle for another 6 months before release on the market. Brilliant garnet-red colour, with warmer tinges developing over time. Unmistakable bouquet, very pleasant, intense yet ethereal, very persistent, at times spiced, with aromas of truffles, liquorice and dried flowers. Dry taste, with important, full tannins.

Floral, sweet tobacco, dark cherry, mint and spices. It has flesh and power, freshness, red fruit and new leather flavours, and firm chalky tannin lending grip. Acidity is very ‘mineral’, and it finishes with excellent length and persistence. It’s a pretty serious affair for an entry level Barolo, and I very much like its earthy/savoury character. If feels uncompromising and old school, in a good way.
