Dark reddish tawny. Nice nose but a bit quiet. Some red fruit, red roses, a little smoke and some cranberry. Young and simple in the mouth. Needs more age.

Sweet Mother I'm in barolo heaven. Tar, rose petal, flint, gravel, lavender, deep red precious sweet fruits and rich soil. Such a velvety masterpiece of power and nuance.
