Wow: what a wine. Huge step up in depth, body and complexity from the Rosso 2016. Epic old school Nebbiolo nose of tar, roses, high toned mid season cherry. Old library and book aromas. Smells like a old academic’s study. Awesome. Palate is deep, rich and so so pure. Wow. Super explosive and rich fruit (2013!!) and incredible layered depth. Such length and persistence with deep red and black cherry fruit and terrific freshness. Really high quality tannins here. Brilliant.

Wow. Amazing. Perfect Nebbiolo spice. Great cherry fruit. Some cherry pit. Amazing balance. A hint of licorice on the finish. Bought from Fass selections.

2012. Very silky and elegant. Some oak, but it's well integrated. Lingering complexity.

2008. Beautiful rusted red color. Wood smoke and autumnal nose.

2008. Dried roses, chokecherry liquor scents, and I could swear I smell a glacier. I haven't had a Valtellina Nebbiolo this good since the early 80s. Absolute Alpine Nebbiolo perfection. F--- modern Barolo.
