Heaven in a glass. All the funk and more funk. Absolutely killer. So food friendly.

Beautiful rich texture with sappy cherry, leathery notes and dried rose. Stunning fruit even after 17 years. Great primary fruit which is bulstered by perfumed aromas. Tannins are completely resolved and the acid is still providing beautiful lift. 1998 vintage

If I could ever describe Nebbiolo as ethereal, this bottle is it. Clean representation of fruit. Fresh tea leaf. Perfumed rose. Completely integrated structure.

Fantastic. Softened tannins, wet earth & dark berries with great acid and a little brett.
