Needed a little coaxing, but some great lifted Nebbiolo character here. Marasca cherry, violet, rock, stick cinnamon

Well balanced with hints of earth and nice acidity. Great with our Italian pappardelle pasta!

Excellent value for its type. Not as complex as Barolo or Barbaresco but has all of the attractive aromas and structure if it's higher priced cousins. Very pale brick red with an orange rim. Medium intensity of dried red cherry, tomato leaf, iodine. Medium body, high acid, slightly saline, chalky high astringency outlasts the fruit coupled with a noticeable bitterness leaves a slightly rustic mouthfeel. Well integrated alcohol 13.5% throws no heat or prickle. Medium finish, medium intensity and complexity cassis, fresh red cherry, herbal.

I used to love this wine 10 years ago, but I'm less impressed with it now. A cool vintage, it has enough balance in fruit and earth, but could use a touch more acid to go with our food. It did open up more and improve with air though.

Candied dark cherry and raspberry, dark licorice, unfiltered tobacco, dead roses and acidity. Still so vibrant and fresh. This is delicious.
