Dried cherries, cassis, olive oil, tar, mushrooms. Charming fruit forward palate with juice, earth, structure and many layers. So nice.

Good - (minus); sacrificing soul and personality over barrique, extract, monolithic flavors. A better alcohol delivery device than ambassador of Barolo. Marc Di Gratzia should be kicked in the toe for this kind of style. There, I said it.
