Cant get enough of this producer and what they do with Nebbiolo.

Excellent nebbiolo from the slopes of Valtellina: delicate small red fruits and a hint of sweet tobacco and cinnamon. Fresh and long lasting at the palate, a perfect match with my "cotoletta alla Milanese"

Austere. Sour cherry. Touch of oak.

Nose focused but subtle. Sour cherry, licorice, roses, and tar. Classic. Beautifully and gently textured with a persistent finish. Just lovely.

Even at 10 years needs some time to open. The bitter, medicinal cherry quality I dislike in Nebbiolo initially, but mellowed out to sexy red fruit and florals/spice with about an hour in decanter. Slightly corked (wont hold it against it), super value, lighter Nebbiolo delight. 💖arpepe

Absolute elegance. Purity of fruit. A fun, lighter wine.
