Bold with notes of dark cherry, leather, and oak. Tannic, but balanced with refreshing acidity. Mellows out with air to show its more elegant side. Purchased at Popina in Brooklyn, NY. — 7 months ago

Here we go! Great nose of spice, florals and mid season cherries. Also ripe but not as bad as the 09. Really really floral and spicey. But still that hint of tomato. Grrr. Wild mint as well. Even some rosemary. Tree bark. Citrus zest. Great depth. Palate is the most youthful and tannic of them all. Big structure and mouth coating tannins. Good structure. Seems like a Ghemme in body and rusticity. Nice length. Solid — 2 months ago
Wonderful Nebbiolo based red from the Piedmont region of Italy. Extensive sour cherry fruit aromas and flavors with notes of leather, organic soil, black licorice, and pepper spice. Brick colored with classic Nebbiolo tannin structure. A bit lighter and more acidic than Barolo, but still bold and beautiful. Time has been very good to this vintage. Thank You Ron B! — 7 months ago
