Really opens up on day 2 with gorgeous aromatics of ground coffee, orange peel and blossom. Fresh cherries and crushed rocks. Was very approachable for a 12 neb on day 1, almost too soft. Day 2 the structure is there - fine but grippy.

Great, very good balance, fresh fruit, silky tannins.
A lot of wine for the money

Uno dei miei nebbioli preferiti. Solido, strutturato e pieno. Un piemontese austero ma gentile.

2012. Very good. Smooth from the start. Nice back patio wine and I would serve it to guests.
