Appearance: Deep garnet red. Bouquet: Ethereal, featuring spicy, tobacco and brushwood notes; there are also important mineral notes. Flavour: Classic and nicely harmonious wine, tannic when young and with considerable ageing potential, making it an unmistakable "Nebbiolo of Serralunga". Food Pairings: An important wine, it encapsulates all the history of our land and fully expresses its talents when served with rich dishes, such as roast red meats or game stew. It is also excellent with medium-mature and mature cheeses. It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C.

Wine EnthusiastForest berry, new leather, camphor and crushed herb aromas lead into the radiant structured palate along with cherry, cranberry, clove and white pepper. This is still tightly knit with a youthfully tannic core but it's on track to bloom into a stunner. Drink 2028-2043.

Wine SpectatorThis red is packed with plum, cherry, leather and iron aromas and flavors. There's a solid base of tannins, but also freshness and balance. Just needs time for that core of ripe fruit to meld with the structure. Picks up tobacco and wild herb details on the finish, along with an echo of mineral. Best from 2022 through 2042. 550 cases made.
