Perfume. This Nebbiolo has it in spades. Rose-hip, violet and young fennel interplayed with red fruits of raspberry, cranberry and crunchy red cherry skin. There is an earth element here too, almost stoney or edgey.
A fining of one year brings out the outstanding complex nose of small red fruits and sweet spices. In the mouth it is generous and fulfilling with an excellent structure and lingering soft dry finish without excessive tannins.
