1996. Earthy, leather, rust. Great nebbiolo wine!

Positively old-school, where rustic tannins and partly dried dark berries and dito cherries intermingle nicely, supported by minerality and fine acidity.

Sforato DOCG 2008, 15%.
This producer is considered one of the best for this particular type of wine.
Very elegantly, scents if blackberries and spices, also old wood, but very smooth.
89/100

Very young (infanticide!) and really closed. Opens up very slowly showin some kirsch, cloves, gingerbread, dark chocolate. On the palate powerful and v. tannic (15m in new barriques).
Don’t open in the next 5yrs! After should be a truly fine wine.

Smooth, complex, nice body. This 2009 Nebbiolo is my favorite wine over at least the last year.

Should I have waited a few more years to open this? Sure! But did this have all the potential to be a fantastic Nebbiolo? Yes! Slightly off balance acidity given the strong tannins of this still-young wine, but it was all I wanted in terms of cherries and dark fruit on the palate.
