Sourced from the Gattera vineyard in La Morra, this Barolo was aged 24 months in Slavonian oak casks, 6 months in concrete tanks and 6 months in the bottle (no filtration pre-bottling). It displays a gorgeous classic Nebbiolo color, with lovely bricking around the edge. The aromas are beautiful, as nuances of dried strawberries and cherries come together with floral, leather, mint, citrus rind and crushed stones all come together to fill the glass. Elegant and refined, this is structured around fine, polished tannins, and demonstrates excellent tension and focus through the ultra-long finish. Overall all this is a beautifully made Barolo from the Bovio family which will evolve gracefully for years to come.
