Shy and closed aromas at first, but shortly opens up with some aeration with an enchanting, vivid and highly complex approach. Dried strawberries, red cherries, mint, blood orange, bitter orange and a controlled volatile - incense like lift. With a steely minerality and an earthy canvas
A high acidity and pronounced tannins which grasps the gum upon entry before spreading across the cheeks with drying texture that surrounds and is balanced by good fruit concentration with a strong and evolving mid palate through a complete finish that is closing with a sweet red fruit profile despite being a bit tart and rowdy upon entry. Day 2 and it’s taken on a more rounded and welcoming profile.

Pop n pour., Quick note: Perfumed, vivid nuanced red fruit, camphor and mint over a savoury earthy canvas
Fresh acidity and pronounced, yet approachable tannins with a powdery texture that surrounds a concentrated fruit intensity with a long and expansive finish. A little marvel, a bargain. So approachable today yet will age forever.

Gattinara is a new region for me. It’s in Northern Piedmont, with smaller output than nearby Langhe, but produces Nebbiolo with a similar “nervy” acidity. This bottle is great, with earthy red fruit and brick red color. Still young, but tasty. Had it with coq au vin 🇫🇷✖️🇮🇹
