Radiant, focused palate. Strength without sacrificing approachability / ten years in, the primary, secondary, and tertiary notes are well aligned

Wow! This was a fantastic wine! Young, as expected but already showing its depth and beauty. The nose of Nebbiolo is always stunning comparatively to other red varietals. It had very inviting notes of rose petals, smokey cedar, nutmeg, and sweet mulling spiced fruits. 15% alcohol, very dense rich in color and weight, exhibiting notes of smoked dates, grilled meat, cloves, sweet cherries, and an everlasting spiced vanilla finish. It'll see some lovely aging for sure, but it was such a surprise hiding behind that bland white label. 2011 was absolutely stunning. Bravo!

Brick color, loads of sediment. Warm and rich, broad. Old for its years.

Elegant, round and structure. Despite the comments made by Giacosa for the 06 vintage, I think it's good wine overall
