Ripe and satisfying, it shows notes of lavender, hibiscus flowers, geraniums, guarana and dried cherries. In the background, the nuances of bergamot, linden and lemon peel describe the sensory freshness of a very pleasant shape. Medium body, perfectly ripe tannins and a graceful and tasty finish. Buon Padre is a blend of 10 different plots from three different municipalities: 80% Barolo, 10% Monforte d'Alba and 10% Novello. Better since 2024.

The 2018 Barolo Buon Padre is tight and streamlined with an elegant delivery of small berry fruit and sour cherry. Nebbiolo's silky fruit is enhanced by blood orange, rusty nail and crushed stone. Buon Padre is in fact an ambitious blend from nine vineyard sites: Bricco delle Viole, San Pietro, La Volta, Fossati, Alessandria, San Ponzi, Albarella, Ravera and Terlo.
