92 Points James Suckling:

"A very impressive array of blueberries, raspberry tea and ripe strawberries. The medium-bodied palate is quite soft and supple, though, and it ends medium-long and medium to very chewy. Drink now."

Winemaker notes

Full-bodied and intense, in line with the typical scents of the grape variety, aged for 1 year in Slavonian oak barrels.

Nebbiolo is the grape variety behind the top-quality red wines of Piedmont, northwestern Italy. Nebbiolo wines are distinguished by their strong tannins, high acidity and distinctive scent – often described as "tar and roses". A less obvious characteristic, visible only over time, is their tendency to lose color. Within just a few years of vintage, most Nebbiolo wines begin fading from deep, violet-tinged ruby to a beautiful brick orange.
