True and authentic Northern Italian juice. There is nothing modern here - these are styles that are reminders of the great Barolo's of the 50s, 60s and 70s. Seen years of barrel / bottle ageing! Crazy. Such a complex style of wine. This is insanely good for the $$. So mellow and balanced. It will love some time in the cellar, but in all seriousness, could easily be consumed now.
