Tasting Notes

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.
