Medium garnet colored this Nebbiolo has some thick legs in the glass (14.5% ABV). The nose has pronounced aromas of leather, cherry, dusty earth, licorice and coffee. Charred oak is evident and there is a perfumed floral note as well. The palate is dry with medium (+) acidity and medium tannins. Full bodied, this delicious wine has flavors of tart cherry, red currant, pomegranate, leather, dusty earth, tar and coffee. The oaky note is very faint. It finishes long and a touch tart with grippy tannins. Still relatively young at 4 years, it will cellar nicely and drink till 2030 at the least. I think it gets 92 points and for $32 it’s a 5 star wine. I am pairing it with slow cooked beef roast and trimmings. Salut….
