Alto Piedmont, but toeing the line with Cru bojo rather than Nebbiolo. Cool year and is quite evident; herbaceous, dried roses, orange rind, damp leather, autumn leaves and dried red fruit. Sinewy tannins and vibrant acidity, still feels like there's years ahead.

This is a full bodied delight. Plum, blackberry and a hint of truffle.

Easy drinking - with a slightly raisin prune nose - well balanced and tannins still present - drinking well but with a fair amount of life left in it

Savory notes of olive and dried meats with some herbs and also candied fruits. An amazing value.
