Tasting Notes

On the nose this beautifully balanced wine has aromas of cherry and dark plum with hints of spice and sweet smoke. A silken texture and invigorating freshness on the palate provide a framework for the succulent ripe red fruits while intriguing notes of wild herbs and dark chocolate adds depth and mystery. Medium bodied with a fine structure and a persistent finish, this wine will age very well. The smallest harvest in 50 years, it was a year of bizarre weather patterns; a wet spring, hail and torrid summer heat. Luckily good water reserves in the soil protected the vines through the worst of the heat and allowed for Nebbiolo with great promise. Drink from 2018.

TASTING NOTES

An extremely elegant reserva with an enveloping bouquet of crushed red cherries and subtle spices with just a hint of lavender. On the palate, smooth textures and bright red berry fruits are balanced by a refined mineral character which leads to a long and refreshing finish. Beautifully defined and supple, and almost Burgundian in style, this wine will age well...

TASTING NOTES

Intense aromas of blackberries and black cherries with a note of chocolate and spice. Velvety smooth on the palate with rich black fruit flavours, some notes of coffee and a touch of black pepper. Good chewy tannins to balance and lingering black fruit flavours on the finish.
