'I was once told that no one will forgive a winemaker if they make a bad Nebbiolo. The logic there is, I guess, much the same as Pinot Noir - both varieties show their winemaking. Whether you've let it be, or interfered, it shows. The pressure seems to be on. That said, this is a great introductory Nebbiolo. It is neither overly tannic, nor unnecessarily floral. Six months on skins, before a portion going in old oak, and another seeing time in newer oak before being blended together. This certainly sits on the feminine side of the variety - brightly and seductively perfumed with bright red cherries and rose petals. The palate is fruit driven, with some deeper, more savoury characters adding balance. This is a crowd pleasing wine, absolutely, and will get you gearing to explore Nebbiolo further!' AWC
