Tasting 1998: Outstanding, very sizeable in its expression of the roses, resin, plums, and anisette of Nebbiolo and endowed with a powerhouse palate, very rich but round and velvety as well. The fruit, minerals, and classy tannins of the close, the sweetness and irresistible texture make this one of the essential wines of the 1998 vintage. Ageing: 1 year in concrete vats and over 3 years in big Slavonian oak barrels. Bottling: April 2003.

Alc: 13.5%
