2010. I’ve never had this wine before, but I’ve had a bottle of the 2007 vintage in my cellar for a long time, so I thought I would see what the 2010 was like… decanted for only 30 minutes or so, it was bright and clear with no signs of age. The typical Nebbiolo aromas were there, but seemed restrained a bit. The savory flavors, lighter body, and higher acidity paired great with my seekh kabobs. I don’t think I have to hurry on my 2007, but with more air, I’m sure it will be delicious. — 21 days ago
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 — 12 days ago
A super alternative to Barolo. Typical Nebbiolo with the strawberry at first, but the exquisite licorice and chocolate. — 5 days 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. — 22 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
Great balance of ripe and sour fruit, spice, and umami notes. Well integrated tannins. — a month ago
