Staying on the Nebbiolo trail
Vibrant, energetic, fresh & juicy. Full of sweet cherry & raspberry, with a flower whiff and a stony-tarry undertone. So enticing!
Medium bodied, with juicy cherry acidity and amazing tannins - silky, finely grained, offering ajuicy, yet firm bite. Perfectly ripe.
Nice depth & purity and great cherry & cherry flower note.
This an ode to youth! Keep your Barbaresco Rosetta’s till they aged with truffle & balsamico while you devour the young, crunchy, joyful „simple” Nebbiolos.

Hints of hazelnut and mint. Strong aroma that reminds one of truffles. Definitely made from grapes grown in soils with 42% porosity and a medium moisture content, presence of cracked limestone below the soils can be tasted in the aftertaste. It does not taste like grape juice…… in other words my son who wrote this review is a geologist and likes spending his father’s money buying nice wine — 3 days ago

Cherry and strawberry fruit, with roses, tar and white pepper. — 16 days ago
Opened several hours prior to service and poured into a ship’s decanter. The 1967 “Riserva” pours a ruddy garnet color with a transparent core and a slightly orange-ish rim. Medium viscosity with no staining of the tears. Some slight signs of fine sediment. On the nose, the wine is vinous but the fruit is still showing so well! A mix of ripe and desiccated red and dark fruits with forest floor, porcini, dried roses, tar, some tobacco, dried herbs, dusty earth and exotic spices. On the palate, the wine is dry; medium+ tannins and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long a slightly savory. This is drinking so well right now and I reckon it’s on a plateau of pleasure. It almost seems evergreen considering its vigor. Drink now because you’ve already waited long enough! — 20 days ago
