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.

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

For 3-4 hours I couldn’t decide if this was corked. Then it became beautiful. Oak still a touch prominent at this point for my taste but this will be delicious.

A wonderfully accessible Nebbiolo. Cherry + tar + and a manageable acid punch.
