Tasting Notes

Medium ruby with a garnet fade, this is hugely expressive on the nose with notes of incense, kirsch, morello cherry, clove and violets. The palate has fresh intensity of bright cherry and bramble fruit with a frame of sappy, firm tannins. Through the mid palate there are further notes of mulling spices and savoury hints of leather too. This is layered, wonderfully balanced and moreish with its sweet and savoury finish. You can drink this already, and it will continue to evolve with more tobacco and leather coming through over the next 5 to 10 years. One of the standout value Barolos we have tasted this year!
