Fairly tannic. I taste black fruits and raspberry. Really tasty. — 24 days ago
If Barbaresco & Margaux had a baby… mostly Nebbiolo - very elegantly styled, regal bearing. No signs of age & fairly tightly wound still - bunch of dusty cherries mingled with spice, asphalt, herbaceousness and violets. Lovely perfumed nose leads to cherries & red fruit on palate, earth & soil but smooth - oh so smooth. Finish didn’t live up to the rest, but still thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Roses, tar, orange marmalade, kalamata olives. A phenomenal streak of dark stony minerals. So expressive, long and filled with just-ripe dark red fruit, very sexy. So clean, fresh, stony, with layers of tartness and ripeness. Such a deep palate. Fantastic. 9.3 but this could go up in time. — 2 months ago
Gulpable. Fruity. Great acid. Nice and round. Strawberry. Yummy Nebbiolo rose ! — a month ago
N: Lots of tar and cured leather on the nose, a bit of mint. Balsamic dipped strawberries, gravel, lots of interesting aromas coming up.like when you sit on an old, dusty, cracked red leather couch.
P: At first crack, all leather and tar with grippy tannins, as it airs, some dark cherries and loam, lots of crisp but assertive fruits, dark berries. Shines w protein. A great treat from Alto-Piedmonte. 12.5° 70% Nebbiolo, 15% each Vespolina and Croatina.Well done!

Nose is lovely dusty rose. As it opens you get this piercing fresh garden rose. Gorgeous.
Palate is still so fresh. Cherries. Liquid roses.
I love this style of alto Piemonte. Moderate fruit lets the secondary flavors shine through. Sour cherries.

Great value inexpensive Spanna (though they use “Nebbiolo” on the label). Nose has lots of slightly sour cherry fruit, a lot of crushed stone, and an interesting green herbal note. In the mouth it’s on the lighter side but fairly energetic. Crisp cherry fruit, rock dust flavors. Some very fine-grained tannin gives a lightly chalky texture to the finish. Cleansing acids. — 17 days ago
