This highly-acclaimed wine has the typical light-garnet colour associated with the finest Nebbiolo grapes. It offers intense yet restrained aromas, with a floral, redcurrant and blackberry base underpinned by a smoky egde. On the palate it is big and powerful, with a great concentration of very ripe fruit supported by the classic Nebbiolo tannins. A finish of great balance and extremely long length completes a superb experience.

NEBBIOLO - Nebbiolo is the grape variety behind the top-quality red wines of Piedmont, north-west Italy, the most notable of which are Barolo and Barbaresco. Nebbiolo wines are distinguished by their strong tannins, high acidity and distinctive scent – often described as "tar and roses". Within just a few years of vintage, most Nebbiolo wines begin fading from deep, violet-tinged ruby to a beautiful brick orange.
"Wonderful. An almost perfect expression of Nebbiolo in varietal form that offers big hits of ripe fruit and balanced tannins. Definitely recommended."
PIEDMONT, ITALY - Piedmont is situated in north-west Italy at the foot of the Western Alps and plays host to some of the most famous names in Italian wine; namely Barolo, Barbaresco, and Barbera d'Asti. Many of the region’s serious, tannic and floral red wines are made from Nebbiolo and are revered for their depth and sophistication, while at the other end of the scale the sweet, white, sparkling Moscato d’Asti has achieved great success due to its elegant delicacy.
