Incredible Nebbiolo with 70 day maceration with many years on ISO. It's a Burgundian lovers Nebbiolo with aromas of spice, smoke, fireplace, and velvet. Love it.

Pretty fragrant with just the right amount of fruit. Could be an 01 griottes Chambertin. Thanks to Alex at Babbo.

When people compare Nebbiolo to Red Burgundy, this should be what they are talking about. Sweet, musty nose. Bright, acidic, yet velvety palate. Still has many years left.

4 years in chestnut. Up to 55 it's old. Needs time.

Out of magnum. Felt like it could have gone 10 more years, at least... Thanks Alex!
