This is juicy and flavorful with a beautiful chocolate, cherry and meat character. Full body, chewy tannins and a delicious finish. Better in a year or two.

The 2013 Barolo Arborina offers a bit more power, depth and resonance than the Gattera. Dark cherry, plum, menthol, licorice and dark spice notes all take shape in this powerful, pleasantly rustic Barolo from Bovio.
