Absolutely pretty nose of dried cherries, rose petals, Forrest Floor and pipe tobacco. Complex pallet of raspberry, black tea, leather and a touch of sweet spices. Very fine tannins and a smooth tannins. Very expressive. One of those years where the producer held off on making his top shelf wines. His best fruit went in to this one. Gorgeous! — 3 days ago
An exceptional value and probably my favorite bottling of their Langhe Nebbiolo to date. So typical - could certainly have mistaken for the general produttori barbaresco. At $23 just ridiculous- should have bought a couple cases. Interesting to see this is the clearly highest rated vintage of this wine on Delectable. — 3 days ago
Medium red to orange in color, showing age fairly early in my opinion. Red cherry, eucalyptus, and forest floor on the nose. Medium plus acidity--almost high. 14.5 ABV. Strong tart red cherry forward on the palate. Anise, roses, and some tertiary flavors of dried leaves emerging. Tannins are firm. Young, sorry to wake you up bro.

What can I say - almost at its peak. Powdery tannins, leather, rose pedals, licorice, cigar box, touch mint can go for another 5-10 years plenty of tannins left. Very classic. I should have bought so much more. One of the best Nebbiolo’s ’ I had in a long time. — 9 days ago
Thoroughly enjoyed this 2017 vintage. With a meatball Sub outside in Oregon sorry but it out their world class pinots to shame. — 3 days ago
Wonderful wine. Decanted 4 hours and this certainly needs it at this point - will try the next bottle in 3-4 years. I actually had the 09 of this wine in Milan 4 years ago, fun to try it again through Fass Selections (and with a new label to boot). Just a great reminder of why nebbiolo is such an amazing grape when tended well. Amazingly aromatic, such depth, great fruit, nice long finish, excellent acid, and a bit of that cooling menthol note. Perfect pairing with some garlic and fennel rubbed pork chops on a rather significant night…
Editing up to a 9.4 after a few more hours of air (total 7+ hours). Also realized this is 15%! Would not have guessed it, but had a nice chill on it throughout. — 9 days ago
