Surprisingly closed & in-aromatic. 3 different glasses and only some shy dusty cherry comes across.
Balanced & juicy on the palate, with racy cherry acidity and good depth. Good tannic presence, nice depth,
This is a very nice wine, yet - overall - I expected more — 9 days ago
Nice dark color, aromas tell you this is not a Saignée, but a purpose made Rose. Rose petals, white nectarine and slight white peppercorns on the nose. Strawberries, stone fruit with a long smooth mouth coating finish. Awesome sipping and great with food. This is one of the best Rose I’ve had. Winner! 85% Nebbiolo 15% Vespolina. WHW — 2 months ago
Quite a complex nose after the initial (strong) reduction blows away - red berry compote, damson plum, some rose hip, a bit of nutmeg, some sweet incense, a bit of tar. But there’s also an incredibly uplifting fresh note - mint, Mandarine peel.
Richness, finesse, sappy freshness.
On the palate this is quite light with finely polished, dusty tannins, fresh red berry acidity and overall great purity. Plus a bit of rusty, bloody minerality in the background and a cranberry infused savoury finish.
Balanced and with good length and incredibly food friendly! A really nice one from Alto Piemonte. — 19 days ago
Supremely elegant. Drinking very nicely with a decant. Cozy mustiness which blows off, mint, fruit, & spices on the nose. Palate is all sweet cherry fruit with a lacework tannic undergirding that softens as it opens. Totally see the volnay comparison @Lyle Fass notes below. Lovely stuff. 😍 — 4 months ago
Really good Nebbiolo 2018 vintage went well with BBQ aubergines, chicken and pork.
Light easy to drink with a lot of flavor.

Don’t be fooled by the label, looking like a closeout from the Olive Garden. This is serious shit, a gourmand wine full of character & finesse. Tar on the nose, palate is high acid with tremendous freshness. Angular at first, but with air the sweet cherry fruit moves to the forefront. Floral & foliage sing backup. Miles to go. Incredible value from Fass Selections @Lyle Fass — 2 months ago
