Once upon a time, there was a young Italian nobleman who loved two things: racehorses and French wines.
Try it as an aperitif wine, with vegetarian as well as meat meals, and even with subtle lemon cookies for dessert. Great for casual meals. Highly Recommended (90).
Dry on the palate with medium acidity, medium-full body, and medium flavors of citrus zest, peach, pink apples, and yellow cherry. Recommended (89-91).
When Ciro Biondi announced that he was going to abandon his career as an architect, in order to revive the generations-old family wine business, his father was not impressed. In fact he was so unimpressed, he refused to even taste a bottle of the estate's wine when it was put in front of him.
This is jut a baby, a declassified Barolo that will be approachable in half the time of its big brothers. Highly Recommended (92).
