Tar. Roses. The classics speak. This is SO along its way. The fruit is a forward vixen (it was a ripe year)?but you’ll be okay with it. And the acid is high enough, the green earth underneath enough that I know that the earth ballasts the fruit and tannins. At its heart blackberries, black cherries and tannins that are in your family. Get the f in.

It's been an honor to sell the wines of the Rovellotti family over the last couple years. From 05 to 07 there has been a high mark of consistency. I'm so happy that people are catching on to the magic of Northern Piedmont. This wine spends around four years in Slovenian botte before bottling. Just released, this is one of the most intense but fragrant wines I've had from Antonello and co.

Love me some alpine nebbiolo, and this didn't disappoint. Takes a minute to open up, but then is generous and super aromatic, with just a notch lower tannin structure than Barolo or Barbaresco, which opens the door to pairing with a wide variety of dishes. That said, mushroom tagliatelle wasn't a stretch, and sure was a great match.

Barolo got nothing on this gem. $ for $ a killer Nebbiolo.

I've been craving Nebbiolo and this hit the spot. Seductively perfumed, purity of fruit, intriguing earthy notes, brightness and tension, fine grained tannins; this had everything I wanted but on this light frame that fits with the season. Absolutely singing on day 2 with loads of umami, amaro spice, deep fruit, and classical tar and rose. Leather and sarsaparilla abound.

Decant. Funk blows off early. Good texture and lift mid palate. Clean finish. SS
