Garnet in color with orange reflections typical of Nebbiolo. The nose has a fragrant and crisp aroma, with hints of red fruits and flavors of berries, and herbs, with floral and spicy notes. On the palate shows a great texture and tannic structure, with a nice sweetness, delicacy, elegance, great balance and fine tannins and a long finish, fruity and nervous. Serve with pasta with game sauces, roast and braised meats, stewed game, wild boar stew, roasts and mature cheeses such as pecorino and Parmigiano Reggiano.

Wild berry, menthol, herb and leather aromas take center stage along with star anise. The tightly wound palate reflects the nose, showing red cherry, pomegranate, licorice and tobacco alongside fine-grained tannins and racy acidity that create a firm finish.

bit too ripe in my opinion, even in this 2016 vintage. This wine offers a soft and delicate side that is expressed with sweet fruit, spice, licorice and tar. This wine is firm and ultimately the most elegant. It could be served right away with a dish of veal-filled agnolotti.
