Wine Description

(2001 Vintage) The complexity of this classic Barbaresco is the result of combining Nebbiolo from 14 estate-owned vineyards. A wine of infinite finesse, it displays the hallmark Barbaresco nose of forest fruits, plums, licorice and tar. Known for its dense structure, full body and a complex finish rich in silky tannins.
