Raspberry, purple flowers, soft and delicate tannins supported by a structure of acidity. This begs for food but gives many happy returns!

Lot of minerality and rocky character. Soft cherry. Woody. Great entry to Valtellina. Definitely pick up the alpine notes on the palette. Soft tannins.

I can't stop drinking this wine. A lovely, affordable iteration of Alta Piemonte's Nebbiolo: light, airy, with a spicy undertone.

What's not to love. Nebbiolo beauty. Not complicated or fussy, but a nice, balanced, red fruit and pine/herbal wine. A versatile, everyday wine.

Surprisingly light and fresh for the grape. A fun example.
