Nose is exceptionally pretty, red fruit, black tea, floral, spicy, acid there…tannin smooth and not elevated…just a fine wine to drink..

Second bottle of this. Would be hard to get to Nebbiolo (err…Chiavenesca!) blind. Tea leaves, earth, and sour cherry.

In an absolutely perfect place. Beautiful. Like a barbaresco at its peak, but that's not totally fair because this is something in and of itself. Wonderful wine.

Just drinking meh. Had it in Milan and it may have been heat damaged. Fruit core was not there. Possible bad bottle, hopefully
