From a special selection of late - ripening Nebbiolo grapes; solely released in great years. Incredible concentration and breed. This wine is so special Romano has chosen to dedicate it to his mother, Maria di Brun...who first taught him to make quality a rule, in life and wines. Beautiful, deep ruby color. Very intense, persistent bouquet, complex and elegant. Full - bodied, hallmark breeding and personality; a deeply satisfying, long - living wine.
|2001: # Points - James Suckling, Wine Spectator: "Rather forward already but showing very pretty berry, cedar and dried flower aromas and flavors. Full- to medium-bodied, with licorice character and a silky, tannic finish. Best after 2006."
