Tasting Notes

Made from Nebbiolo grapes grown on one of the most historic vineyards in Neive, the 2008 is elegant and complex with sweet plum and cassis aromas, intermingled with prunes, dried fruits and herbs. On the palate, ripe, soft fruit is balanced by fine tannins and delicate mineral notes. This is a beguiling and wonderfully expressive wine which opens up in the glass. Surprisingly attractive now, it will continue to develop over a long time. Drink from 2015 to 2030 and beyond.
