Sipping Fine Wine

Found another 2009, 100% Nebbiolo grapes grown in the Ovello Cru, a premiere site. Ruby with red Berry fruit, floral and flint aromas. On the palate, cherry, raspberry and ripe strawberry flavors with a touch of earthy floral tastes. Tannins are muted, balanced with acidity, well structured. Drinking great now, should last a few more years but why wait on this beauty?

From the Piedmont region, Barbaresco sub-region. 100% Nebbiolo grapes grown in the hills above above Barbaresco. Aromas of sweet dark berry fruit with floral notes. Aged for 2 years on oak showing black cherry and ripe strawberry flavors with gentle hints of black pepper and tobacco, nice balance and structure. Fine soft tannins on lingering finish ending with earthy tones. Will age well, tried one 6 months ago, getting better but needs more time.

Dry, slightly funky. Really interesting and affordable Nebbiolo.

Still very dense primary fruit showing with lots of anise and rose petals. Lots of life still ahead of this one.

Great typical nose and taste. Tannins thankfully softened after 3 hour slow-ox. Dad enjoyed with Korean spread by his non-Korean daughter-in-law
