Barolo DOCG 'Gattera', Cordero di Montezemolo
A brash and modern style with attractive and newer oak notes, which are all cedary and spicy across wild red cherries. The palate has real depth and power. It delivers a long spice-wrapped train of red and dark cherries. One of the best and most complete wines of the vintage.
