Here’s a bold and modern Nebbiolo from the San Cristoforo cru with a rich, extracted appearance followed by intense aromas of ripe cherry, spice, black licorice, slate roof and dried tobacco leaf. The tannins are dusty and drying but give excellent structure to the wine’s overall richness and opulence.
Here’s a very impressive Barbaresco with lush concentration and a beautiful, deep color. Aromatically, the wine puts forth layers of mature cherry, dark chocolate, red rose and cigar box. It’s a structured, hefty style that would pair with grilled meats. Wait 5-10 years before drinking.
An appealing and very intense nose of sweet dark fruit and anise. The palate did not quite match the promise of the nose; and while it showed the same intensity of fruit, it did seem edgy, and the finish was a little disappointing.
The nose is a lovely mix of violets, strawberry, and jasmin. The palate lacks the intensity of the nose, although the bright fruit floral elements still come through in a muted form. The finish is short to medium. An pleasant wine that needs a touch more concentration.
