It is aged in oak for 2 years, giving the wine body and powerful, building tannins.Aromas of dried cranberry and eucalyptus are balanced with perfumed floralscents. Tart raspberryfruit on the palate intertwines with a dusty earthiness that is classic Barolo making it gritty and rustic but also polished and elegant.
