Deep red-black color with an intense, soaring perfume of strawberry, red cherries, rose petals and violets. In the mouth, this is very concentrated and intense but possesses good balance and structure, all framed by layers of red and black fruits. Great mid-palate presence, with less of the licorice but more of the floral aspects that Nebbiolo reveals. The ripe tannins will require a bit of patience but it is hard to resist this wine now. Good balance and a precise balance of oak give this wine a long sweet finish.
In the menthol mode, with additional flavors of cherry, tobacco and hints of tar, this red is bright and focused. The dusty tannins on the finish are complimented by sweet fruit. Offers fine, chewy length. Best from 2017 through 2035. 125 cases imported.
