Menthol and eucalyptus aromas outline the strawberry, cherry and rose flavors in this sleek red. It's firm and lively, with moderate grip on the lightly chewy, iron-tinged finish. Best from 2023 through 2045. 1,300 cases made, 450 cases imported.

Underbrush, toasted hazelnut, eucalyptus and woodland-berry aromas mingle together on this elegant red. On the linear, structured palate, firm refined tannins accompany red cherry, spiced cranberry, mint and tobacco alongside fresh acidity. Drink 2024–2036.

The Giulia Negri 2016 Barolo La Tartufaia is a light to mid-weight expression with delicate touches of cassis, dried berry, violets and rose petal. There are earthy tones as well that slowly segue to tobacco and light spice. All said and done, the mouthfeel is light considering the power of this classic vintage, but the wine is accessible and approachable from the get-go. A tad more humph and power would go a long way here to drive persistence. Production stands at about 15,500.
