Fantastic! This Nebbiolo-based red from the Boca commune is tightly coiled at the moment, needs decanting. Nose of black cherries and cloves. Beautifully defined on the palate, moderately high acidity makes this both a wonderful food wine and a long ager. Tannins are fine, with the quality of Italian plum skins and black tea. Medium bodied, with a moderately lengthy finish.
