Winemaker's Notes: "Affectionately known as 'Truffle Hound' - This wine pays homage to the locals in Barolo who drink freshly fermented Nebbiolo before they take their expertly trained dogs (and pigs!) in the cold, foggy mountains of Barolo to hunt for the most savoury, earth-drenched truffles they can find. This is our early-released, approachable and jovial expression of Barbera & Nebbiolo blend and - making its debut - Sangiovese from the Clare Valley- we aim to retain the higher aromatics, herbal savouriness for its amaro-like refreshment. For those that favour meaty, gaminess over bright plum-fruit. An exploration for umami-like refreshment. It presents with a smoky, amaro-like liquorice and cardamom spice. Given drive by a lively and juicy palate-weight and pucker with a bright yet savoury finish. Method: 5 days on skins, co-fermentation, matured in stainless steel."
