Palmina Nebbiolo 2007
A come-hither rich ruby color with garnet highlights first invites you to the glass and encourages a swirl. Aromas of rose hips and warm earth, garden spice and dried plum waft from the glass. A first sip delivers a textural yin-yang of bright acidity and dusty tannins that envelop and transport flavors of mulberry and tea, red plum skin and dried cherry, blackcurrant and cassis. A thread of graphite-like minerality and hints of tar linger on the finish. This is an elegant, food wine that will continue to evolve with cellaring. Designed to enjoy at the table now -Nebbiolo will soon have her hooks in you, too!
