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!

N:Deep black cherries with an acidic raspberry lift. Tarry northern Italy. Black/red. Some interesting musty barnyard/funk goodness.
P: Upon initial pnp, this was dry as a bone.Really opens up and jucifies with air and a chx/prosc/mozz sand.
Still very black w red overtones.
Little tannic grip on the back end esp.
I can’t see this lasting long once popped.
13% . To find the vintage, you have to look closely, bottom right side of label.

Radiant orange tint on garnet. Meaty with plum and fig, raspberry with pipe tobacco and pine tar with a sweet burnt rye aspect. There are subtle strawberries and black cherry, blood orange flambè, and dried violet on the nose. Dried raspberry and blackberry, cranberry tannin combo, wolf berry, red currant and smoke. Delicious with Bresaola!! .

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. 9.4 but this could go up in time. — 6 days ago
