2013 Barolo La Tartufaia, Serradenari - Giulia Negri
A fine, open nose with notes of dried strawberries, forest floor, tobacco and heaps of roses. Very finely perfumed. Lovely.
The taste is cool and elegant with still tight tannins and notes of violets, roses, tobacco and Langhe earth. Long and balanced. 4+ years. Earlier notes - Barolista: 2010 & 2013 Barolo La Tartufaia, Giulia Negri.
