Another great example of why Nebbiolo from Alto Piemonte may be one of the best values in wine. Delicious with dark fruit and lots of earth. Quite complex and full on the palate. Tannins could use a couple more years to resolve a bit more but even with limited air this is quite a nice wine indeed. — 20 days ago
Tobacco, dried leaves, basil, rosemary, high minerality - crushed stones, sanguine on the nose. Plum juice, blueberry, juicy blackberry, mocha, spices, and licorice on the palate. Still tight grippy (high) tannins. Elevated acidity. Elevated intensity, medium plus finish. — a month ago
Old Nebbiolo will make you cry. Either because it’s no good or because it’s so amazing it’s life changing. Fortunately tonight is category two. This has the texture of very good burgundy. Sweet sweet cherry fruit. A hint of spice. Nicely dense. Nose has cherry flowers and pine. Has at least another ten years ahead of it.
As this opens more dense cherry liquor. Crazy palate coat. Just a cherry Nuke bomb. Internal aromatics are sweet rose juice. Some rose on the nose.

This has a subtle aroma and not too subtle tannins, which will alienate many. — 16 days ago
