Tasting Notes:
This has all the ethereal beauty of Nebbiolo with great acidity and plenty of tannins to make it last as long as you want. Roses, violets, tar, liquorice, truffles and tobacco all pour out of this bottle. Delicious. Hold to 2015+ or allow to breathe for at least one hour.
Drinking Dates:
2015 to 2025
Cépagement:
100% Nebbiolo (30 year old vines) from Neive
Upbringing:
After pressing, the grapes ferment for eight days followed by a four day maceration. The wine matures for 18 months in barriques of which 30% are new and 70% used so as to not to extract too much oak during the process. There is additional fining in steel casks up to 12 months before bottling.
ABV:
14.5%
Critic Reviews:
"This opens offers defined aromas of black cherry, cassis, cola, tar, spice, tobacco and Spanish cedar. An ethereal tone of chopped mint or rosemary oil also appears on the finish. The mouthfeel is crisp, taut, firm and long." 91/100 (Wine Enthuiast)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
