      Go Back
Tasting Notes:
Bigger fruit than the 2006 but with the same upbringing, it has very well integrated oak and an almost Burgundian sweetness.

Note: an administrative oversight means this wine is not allowed to put "Casot" (the name of the vineyard) on the label but it does come from there (they don't have Barbaresco vines anywhere else!)

Drinking Dates:
2012 to 2030
Cépagement:
100% Nebbiolo
Upbringing:
Aged two years in large old casks (500 to 3000 litres in capacity) which are blended together before bottling.
Critic Reviews:
"This opens with a blast of espresso bean that lends a modern twist. The oak tones are softened by wild berry and licorice notes. The mouthfeel is steely, fresh and firm." 90/100 (Wine Enthusiast)

"This 100% Nebbiolo from Piedmont comes from a single vineyard called 'Casot', but according to James "an administrative oversight means this wine is not allowed to put (it) on the label." It was aged two years in large, old casks. This has a lovely nose, the tar and roses of maturing Nebbiolo is there, with a crisp-edged, juiciness to the red and black fruit, a touch of something charcoally, and a layer of toast and charriness beneath. On the palate this has beautiful sweetness of fruit, a savoury black olive twist counteracting the berry fruits. It is supple and lithe, the tannins grippy but fine, and the overall sense of freshness and balance is delightful. No shortage of stuffing to age a while yet, but approachably fruit and elegant now." 91/100 (Tom Cannavan, wine-pages.com)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
