Same notes as LBT, fleshy, open knit and delicious!

Really loved the generosity and open knit texture this had. Remarkable grace for its youth and plenty of immediacy on the mid-palate with its nice round morello cherry and red plum fruit. Layers of cool herbs, wildflowers, and warm spice add to the mix. The pliancy of the tannins really brought the whole package together. Lovely bottle

Popped and poured; drank with dinner of kabobs and fattoush so no formal notes. Ripe dark and red fruits, tar, dried herbs. Tannins are still firm but well within the range of drinkability. Drink now or over the next 10 years. Paired well with the meal.

One for the ages. In a beautiful spot right now if you like your nebbiolo a little rugged. Subtlety and complexity evident, with layers of dried raspberry, raisin before pencil lead, anise, mulling spices and essential tar and roses. Chemical quality. Tannins and bracing acidity still holding this gorgeous profile together.

Fleshy for Produttori. Raspberry, anise, pencil lead. (Tar & roses goes without saying.) lovely.

Black licorice, black tea and soy sauce on the nose. Similar flavors on the tongue with this salty characteristic. Interlaced on the finish were some tannins like mocha dust. Seemed like it was at peak or past peak. Drink now.

There is no better feeling than opening a bottle of wine that never lets you down.
