Nebbiolo/Cab/Merlot Blend. Massive tannins with fruit struggling to keep up. Fine to drink but shows the weakness of the vintage.

Nice wine, but don’t understand the French varieties. Nebbiolo doesn’t need help, IMHO. Tart cherry concentrate.

Would have never expected this wine to be so good. For being 26 years old it is still so fresh and vibrant. Earthy components of dried flower petals, iron, barn dirt/dust, wild blackberries, nice spicy edges. Still well structured and beautiful acidity. I would have guessed this was a 10-12 year old.

Quite enjoyable if less serious than past vintages of this blend. I liked it but the alcohol level was higher than I would have liked as I have been drinking 12-13% and the 2-2.5% really makes a difference. Ripe bing cherry and red licorice aromas waft from the glass with subtle but noticeable oak, and just the lightest twinge of spice. This is all sex and gloss, sorry but I was disappointed. The price has gone up but the quality has gone mainstream, or down fort my tastes.

Sito Moresco and tell me that you love me...

Actually, this is a beautiful little wine. Classic? No. Piedmontese? Maybe in an off-hand way. Yet stinking delicious.

Strawberry, rose, toast and lightly buttery (melted butter). My first Langhe tasting. Impressive !

I found it enjoyable but too forced and ripe and showy. #nebbioloblend #piedmont

Needs time in the decanter. Restaurant buy so only had a little bit of time to allow some air to get in there. By the half way portion of our meal it really opened up and softened up.

Cherry, floral, little smoke, nice spice note, could be the food.
