(2014) Nebbiolo from the very north of Piemonte, along with touches of Vespetina and Croatina. Creamy and earthy, a touch of leather and of tar, but a core of very nice, ripe, brightly focused red fruits. A hint of vanilla too, but never losing sight of that lift, elegance and brightness of cherry. Lovely energy on the palate too, with a stripe of juiciness powering through and giving this tension and freshness into a long, harmonious finish. A fine wine, touches of spice adding an extra layer of interest.
