Product Description

"Good medium red. Aromas of black cherry, violet and licorice. Sweet and open-knit, offering tactile blackberry, graphite and pepper flavors complicated by a saline nuance." 
89 points, Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar Nov/Dec 13

"100 per cent Nebbiolo from vines aged between 15 and 60 years old. It was matured for 12 months in large Austrian and German oak casks. Nebbiolo excelled in 2011 and the Rocca's, yet to be released, Barbaresco wines from this vintage are little short of breathtaking. It therefore stands to reason that this Nebbiolo is pretty handy for its level. It comes from a single-vineyard in Barbaresco and goes long on pristine fruit generosity and caressing texture. The succulent fruit is marvellously balanced by the natural structure and the natural savouriness of this variety. Tanzer is a bit stingy here but he seems like a nice guy, so we'll let this one pass." Importers Note
