This is priced higher than average for Barolo wine. The price has been stable over the past year.

Deep, bright, ruby colour. Fine, mineral bouquet with hints of dark fruit, sweet spice and aromatic herbs. This Barolo moves smothly across the alate with opulent fruit aromas, showing a solid backbone, racy tannins and an extremely long finish.
