Oh yeah! Raspberries, cherries, kiwi fruit and herbs on the nose. On the palate it’s Luxardo cherries and tart raspberries. Tongue smacking acid and medium tannins. Delicious!

Nice orangey brick hue. Tasted violets, ripe cherries with mineral. Took a little while to open up.

An impenetrable wall of tannin took over after an hour or so, but this was drinking nicely on the pop an pour. I guess you can give these time, but not sure this fruit can hang with the tannin long term.

Just lovely- great to revisit the first Nebbiolo I ever tasted, 10 years later, out of mag.

The unnecessarily but satisfyingly quirky bottle shape is a distinctive feature of the wines of Gattinara. From northern Piemonte, this is great value, high-quality, old-fashioned Nebbiolo. Delectable say it costs $74; it doesn't, it's around $30.

A relatively affordable, great bottle of 1973. I thought it would never happen. (And it's Travaglini when I'm a Nervi/Antoniolo supporter...) Smoky, fruity and balanced. The wine gods are good.
