Getting old. Still very good but the vibrancy is gone.

I admit it. I’m not a fan of Nebbiolo and my friend brought this as a special treat. It’s... good. For me it doesn’t hit that ethereal plateau it seems to for others. Enjoy.

Lovely supple fruit. Sour cherry, strawberry, leather and tobacco. Lovely plush middle and good length.

95% Nebbiolo 5% Barbera. Muted nose 20 Minutes after decanting. Mid ruby in colour with a Tawny edge - like cold black tea. Scents of dried cherry and earthy notes finishing with dry savoury tannins. Everything in balance. Even though this Wine spent some time in French Oak Barriques that influence does not intrude - perfect balance. Very impressed - beautiful Wine.

Stunner!! Dried strawberry, asphalt, cardamom, a piercing, electric quality on the nose. Talcum tannins, vivid freshness, savory (autumnal) finish. Nebbyolo4eva

Outstanding; modern winemaking take with the fortunate occurrence of a linear nebbiolo; stuff that ages 50 years well; coiled up acidity and tannin; Gaja time
