The Barolo of the south, more or less. One of the better Taurasis I've tried. Mouthful of old world acidity and tannin balanced by wonderful new world earthiness and fruit.

Dark berries, woodsy earth, smooth tannins and just right acidity. Enjoyed it immensely.

In 10 years, this wine is going to be ridiculous. Great now already.

Opened up fully after an hour. Fruit came out and came through the tannin. Expressive but you had to wait for it.
