In an absolutely perfect place. Beautiful. Like a barbaresco at its peak, but that's not totally fair because this is something in and of itself. Wonderful wine.

Just drinking meh. Had it in Milan and it may have been heat damaged. Fruit core was not there. Possible bad bottle, hopefully

Limpid, egg whites effective, like a burgundy PN, still structure to follow food, nothing aggressive very elegant

First in a side by side of 3 Nebbiolo from different terroir. An all time favorite producer for me. High elevation, chestnut barrels, great stuff.
