    Violet and floral aromas. Juicy with refreshing touches of cherry, strawberry, currant, and very ripe tannins. An approach to Barolo that lends instantaneous drinkability.

    Aged exclusively in stainless steel, this wine used rotofermenters during the 7 day fermentation process that was conducted at 28 °C.
