Aromas and flavors of lingonberry, capers, buttery pastry crusts, and pate with a tannic, vibrant, dry medium-full body and a warming, layered, very long finish with notes of caramel and tar. A firm but generous Barolo with distinctive caper berry flavors; stylish, balanced, bodacious." - Tastings.com
