In The Glass:
This cuvée is a blend of the younger vines found in the various
“crus”. Since its inception, the Barolo has offered a stylish take
on the Brovia approach to this appellation. There is never excess
here, no attempt to showboat or to flaunt an image of power.
Above all, balance is the key element in faithfully rendering a
Barolo of great stature. You will find here the classic grainy tan- nins, the long, mineral-inflected finish, the aromas of late-sum- mer roses and flavors of dried cherries.
