A great showing for this wine. Purple in color with ruby swirls. The nose is dusty with cherries. On the palate, medium tannins. Cherries and tart cherries. Some complexity. Good finish. This is closing in on peak but still has a bit to go. Still, it is drinking quite well. It is a more feminine take on a Barolo but that is not to say light or weak. It will easily go another ten to twelve years. This will work well with roasted fowl.
