2017 Ferdinando Principiano Barolo di SerralungaPiedmont, Italy
2016 was a grande "annata" in most of Barolo, and that’s also the case here. It’s a classic, cool vintage that highlights elegance. Rose petal, camphor, perfumed berry and forest floor are just some of the aromas you'll find on this gorgeous, radiant red. It's delicious and loaded with an earthy finesse, delivering succulent red cherry, ripe strawberry, licorice, game and almost salty mineral notes. Taut, refined tannins and fresh acidity keep it impeccably balanced. Drink through 2031.
