Last night, early am flight back to Miami. Not going out with a big bang but instead one final solid bottle of Nebbiolo.

Lightly fragrant, high acidity, dry, 14 ABV.

NOTE: As a statistician, I suspect that my ratings while in Italy may have a built in +0.1 upward bias (e.g., an enhancement due to the experience of being there). With more data, I can test this via regression.

Not getting a ton out of the nose. Might be just me tonight. Seems a bit hot via the nose (is 14%) but not getting much else. Has the thinness of a ruby Pinot Noir initial taste is not overpowering unlike fuller bodied wines. Very fruity. Plum, Raspberry.

Berries and dried roses. Delicate. Well-integrated tannins. Wish it was just chilled slightly.
