Deepish color. Spicy herby nose. Very rich mix of fruit, tannin, and acidity, adding up to a wine that seems more for impressing than for pleasing. This has power but lacks charm.

Very dark, concentrated blackish ruby. Nervy, intense, and unexpectedly smooth. Another winemaker's Barolo in which dry tannins show up only after a massive fruity palate impact. Pretty smart stuff! Dry and quite exciting on the finish. One of the more emphatic wines in this collection but well made. Just a bit sweet and loose on the finish. Drink 2015-25
