2016 Barolo DOCG "Sperss®", Piedmont, Italy

Very deep, polished and fine scent of mainly red berries with nutty and a little dried floral aromas, a little tar, tobacco, nutty traces and some minerality. Exceptionally noble, ripe, firm red fruit with a delicate acid bite and youthful, yet incredibly fine, polished tannins, some cocoa spice and dried herbs in the background, persistent and quite dense on the palate, excellent depth, very elegant style, still undeveloped, but already with deceptive charm, chalky and salty mineral tones in the background, very good to long, fine juicy and spicy finish. Even if it already beguiles now: its great time will come in 10 or more years
