It's really nice when a wine starts out as 'ordinary' and then grows into something complex and full of memory as it sits. Over an hour, this has turned from only fresh strawberry w/ an alcohol nose burn to cedar, raspberry, black cherry, tar, dr pepper, cocoa, and rose petal. Crumbly tannin, med+ acid, and a moderate finish. If I'm being objective, it's a touch hot, the oak is apparent, and the fruit is just a bit overripe, but tonight - at home w/ osso buco, my wife, my daughter, and memories of my father - it's perfect.

Great year for this wine as there are no Cru sites in 2006, however they were mostly vinfied by site and were for a time headed into single site. Killer value and an excellent, accessible Nebbiolo!

Go to Barbearesco. The right time to drink some Nebbiolo. Bright & vibrant on the nose and palate. Acid, cherry, subtle spice and great tannin on the palate, just starting to soften.
