Product Description

100% Nebbiolo from vines with an average age of 35 years, grown on a calcareous, south-facing slope at an elevation of 200m. Sustainably farmed, with no use of pesticides or herbicides. Alcoholic fermentation for 10 days in temperature controlled roto-fermenters followed by malolactic fermentation in 600-litre medium-toast French oak casks (50% new and 50% one-year-old), then aged for 20 months. Transferred to stainless steel for three months before bottling with no fining or filtration. Light red color, typical of Nebbiolo. The bouquet is firm with raspberry and cherry character, hints of lemon rind. Intense and rounded taste with a lovely juicy palate that holds blackberry and violet notes. It provides great complexity and depth with fine tannin structure.

The tar and roses are certainly here on the nose with ripe fruit, too. Full-bodied, dense and chewy with beautiful fruit and length. Chewy, polished and compact. Needs two or three years to soften. Drink in 2022. 94 Points jamessuckling.com
