This is squarely in my wheelhouse. Love this wine. Love this producer. Needed 45 minutes to open. The cork was only lightly stained and no sediment in bottle. This is still a young wine but bursting. Lots of fruit. Well balanced. Grippy and long. It has a maturity and a complexity despite its age. Another winner. — 3 days ago
Staying on the Nebbiolo trail
Vibrant, energetic, fresh & juicy. Full of sweet cherry & raspberry, with a flower whiff and a stony-tarry undertone. So enticing!
Medium bodied, with juicy cherry acidity and amazing tannins - silky, finely grained, offering ajuicy, yet firm bite. Perfectly ripe.
Nice depth & purity and great cherry & cherry flower note.
This an ode to youth! Keep your Barbaresco Rosetta’s till they aged with truffle & balsamico while you devour the young, crunchy, joyful „simple” Nebbiolos.

Quite deep ruby , garnet , terracotta rim . Quite a lot of spice , red cherry , balsamic touch with orange rind and , touch of porcini mushroom , dark tea . Quite big and bold with , menthol , dark fruit , quite extracted , drying tannin. Ok finish , with some roasted chestnut character coming through. Needs time, better in 5-10 years and last well a further 7-10. — 13 days ago

Quite deep ruby , wide terracotta rim . Lighter and more elegant on the nose than the Starderi, porcini , lighter floral and slightly medicinal notes . On the palate rounder generous red fruits , with touch of liquorice , slightly medicinal notes . Quite sweet tannins , and refreshing acidity , good liquorice stained length. This too would benefit from a little more time 3-5 years perhaps , and will last well a further decade — 13 days ago
Oct 2023: 10 y.o., first try. Still very tight, strong tannins and classic beautiful nose, not many signs of tertiaries yet. Far less approachable after 5 hours in decanter as compared to another traditionally styled Barbaresco Riserva 2013 of a less known winemaker, open together and started singing after 2 hours in open bottle. The wine built to last and please connoisseurs, 91 pts for know with great potential up to 93-94 pts some day, will give a new try in a few years — 4 years ago
