Super pretty Langhe Nebbiolo. All fruit is from Castiglione Falletto in Barolo but they don't age it as long and the winemaking is a bit different than DOCG guidelines call for. Fermentation in stainless and elevage in the traditional neutral Slavonian oak botti. Pours a pale ruby-garnet hue. Nose of slightly dried sour cherry, potpourri and rose + violet floral tones, new asphalt, slightly volatile balsamic character, and a slight fennel-spiced cured meat note. Palate confirms the nose with the fruit showing a bit more prominently on the palate. Acid is screaming and tannin is firm with moderate (+) intensity yet already decently fine grained and caressing, this could honesty probably do well from a couple more years in bottle. Medium (-) body but still has some layered texture to it. Couldn't go wrong with this and a hearty baked pasta dish. Very tasty and a great value for Piedmont Nebbiolo of decent quality.
