Beef juices, star anise and cigar tobacco. Limpid color, great structure and open enough to enjoy now. Brilliant!

Surprised how delicious. Round cherry nose with balanced tannins. Clean and fresh.

This immediately shows an open & agreeable aromatic character. This is an excellent example of the high toned, acid driven Nebbiolo. The tannins are the anchor here, but the red fruit positively shimmers across the palate. There is a keen sense of accessibility with this with a counterpoint of grippy nuance & silky textural complexity. Delicious with some braised lamb, but almost a meditation on Nebbiolo afterward by itself.

With a fat steak. Enjoyable wine for what looks very light. Packed more punch than expected.

Anise, leather and subtle smoke. And a little basketball. Dry soft tannins that slowly fade.
