Rich ripe nose, full of savory herbs, sweet mushroom, and fresh tar, but shows its youth on the palate--ripping tannin. Nothing like young Nebbiolo first thing in the morning

Classically styled. A bit too soon to drink, yet highly enjoyable in its youth.

I wish it were colder right now (currently 63 ° in Charlotte) because this is warming, bright and candy-apple red fruit. Soft tannins, great length.

What a gem! Under $40 and behaves like a $100 wine. Delish now, but it's going to hang in there for several years.

Seems to be a fair amount of Nebbiolo in it... One of our favorites, as good w/ burgers as it is w/ a roast chicken....

Showing beautifully. Just enough oak to round off tannins from the grapes. A truly excellent Barbaresco for its price range.

Still young and with only half an hour in decanter it was face ripping tannic. After 2 hours it softened and showed better dark cherry, tar and tobacco. Needs to cellar a few more years.

Robust and savory, young Nebbiolo. Opened up wonderfully in the glass, perfect for a night of truffle cheeses.
