(2014) In many ways this was my favourite wine of the Ca'Rossa range tasted, and indeed I see it earned '3 bicchieri' from Gambero Rosso too. All Nebbiolo, it spends 30 months in large Slavonian oak barrels, and comes from a tiny plot on the hill of Mompissano. It has a gorgeous nose that is subtly earthy with tobacco, clove and a tiny floral lift, and plenty of bold cherry and plum fruit. It is forward and modern, in a confident way, but classically restrained too. Lovely energy and finesse, the tight tannin structure and juicy acidity, as well as its medium body, counterbalance the fruit whilst all the time complex hints of herbs, gravel and steeliness speak of its concentration.
