THE PRODUCER: Luciano Sandrone
Denomination: Barolo DOCG
Grape-variety: Nebbiolo 100%
Aging: For 26 months in the same barrels where malolactic fermentation took place, than further 15 months in the bottle.
Color: Deep ruby red.
Nose: Tight red and black fruits in the somewhat reticent nose, surrounded by leather, shades of truffle and nice minerality.
Taste: In the mouth black fruit character coming through at the mid-palate, accompanied by cola, licorice, balsamic and spice notes. There is excellent acidity, freshness and balanced power, but this will require 8-10 years of age to reach its drinking peak. The tannins are dry and long in the finish, with graphite and tobacco.
