Ruby red, intense when young, tending to slight garnet. The bouquet is intense yet delicate. The palate is dry, full-bodied and typically bitterish. As it ages it will become more refined assuming a full and harmonious flavour. A very tasty cherry-and-beef flavor on a sweet mid-palate followed by a tart, moderately tannic finish.
The intense and brilliant colour perfectly expresses the polyphenols of a very successful Nebbiolo. On the nose it develops gradually its richness; the initially fruity and spicy aromas envelop notes of sour cherry and raspberry, while hints of cocoa and vanilla make the bouquet even more intriguing
