A very ripe, fruity red with plum, spice and grilled meat aromas and flavors. Subtle. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a fresh finish. 200 cases made.

Dark ruby. This masculine, brooding Barolo offers a deep, earthy nose of toasted oak and underbrush, followed by flavors of dark stewed fruits, cherries, vanilla, and minerals on a strapping frame, closing with a fresh note of menthol on the finish.

Medium red. Highly spicy aromas of redcurrant and cocoa powder. Rich, plump and spicy, with slightly wild but sweet flavors of marzipan, leather and underbrush. The leathery note carries through on the finish, which features some drying tannins.
