Interesting amd complex nose: black cherry, earth, and a floral hint of rose pedal and lilac, ... yes lilac!

This is a full bodied wine with firm tannins. Good balance.

Taste is also complex. black cherry, plums, black pepper.

There is a hard mineral finish. The finish itself is long.

Not a bad barolo at all.
