The Batasiolo vineyard where the Nebbiolo grapes for this wine are from is located on the eastern edge of La Morra, close to famous Castiglione Falletto.
This Barolo is medium ruby and has deep legs with classic aromas of sour cherry, dried rose, truffle and tar with light tobacco.
The palate is dry with high acidity and velvety, light tannins. Flavours show more rose petal, plum, tar, leather, and sweet tobacco.
Nuanced and elegant, layered and balanced.
WSET Very Good.
