One of the last vintages from these old vines before they were taken out to replant. Soft silky Barolo tannins!

Early yet, but really beautiful right now. Perhaps a little more rich and plush given the vintage, but I'm not complaining. There's a depth and density to the fruit here that's surprising to me, though maybe it shouldn't be. Kept going back to this all night.

Great wine providing grip, pure and aromatic fruit and pronounced minerality. Dangerously easy to drink thanks to near perfect balance.

Nice nose. Still has a lot of acid, would have guessed younger

Lots of smoked pepper, red cherries, and a hint of game. Juicy and pretty, with good acid and grippy tannin from this single vineyard Nebbiolo. #barbaresco #nebbiolo #piedmont #deliciousness

Old school, old world. Great blend of red fruits, spice and earth

Amazing wine. This is what makes Barbaresco such a special region in my book. Fine-grained tannins, beautiful structure, flavors that are both broad and deep and a supremely superb finish.
