Palish bright red.  Scented nose offers red cherry, mint and an ineffable floral perfume.  Juicy, intense and delineated, with lovely orange peel lift to its sweet red fruit and floral flavors.  The finish coats the mouth with dusty, fine tannins.  Remarkably harmonious for a base-level Barolo made from 5 or 6 of the family's 15 Barolo crus.
