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?

Expressive aromatics of kirsch, leather, tar, tobacco, mint, cedar, violets, and truffle. At first glance, a vintage for early drinking, but this retains gripping tannins after a couple hours of air.

Solid and correct. Somewhere between traditional and modern. A pristine Nebbiolo.

I'm a big fan of this producer. Skirts the line of modern & traditional. This is an elegant version of Barbaresco. 2009 vintage.
