Beautiful bright ruby, representing Barbera, along with some orangeish tints at the rim, typical of Nebbiolo. From there I get mostly Nebbiolo traits. Powerful aroma: smoke, roses, a bit of balsamic. Both dark and red cherries in the mouth along with black licorice. Plenty of tannin at this stage but as the meal goes, ripe red fruit flavors emerge. Much complexity, much pleasure in the finish.
