Balls to the wall Nebbiolo. Love Ghemme. Funky nose of cherry, hint of barnyard, nuts, spice, mint and sour cherry. It’s great but wild. I suspect with air it will become more tame. Palate is gorgeous. Deep and ripe. Terrific fruit that cuts a swath across the palate. Rustic and energetic with again, sick deep cherry fruit that echoes on the long finish with gorgeously ripe tannins. Big wine and even bigger fruit, tannins and terrific freshness. If you’re not drinking ripe vintages in Alto Piemonte you’re doing it wrong.

What a nose. Chestnut, tar, roses, leather, huge spice. Shows ripeness of vintage but so classic and old school. Rich and ripe with nice caressing tannins and so so juicy. Lovely spice and minerals and beautiful freshness. Long finish. Really really impressive. @Delectable Wine this is Il Chiosso winery and the Cru is Terre Moreniche.
