For years now we've watched glumly as the price of Barolo has exploded, with rampant American and English demand turning wines that were once $50 delights into $150 rarities.
But now, a saviour has arrived. A classic Nebbiolo; from a vintage that Jancis Robinson MW called 'great'; built in a style that is pure old school Barolo (mid-weight, tannin driven and hearty), and primed for a long life in the cellar.
Tasting Notes: Garnet with orange accents, the nose is heavily perfumed with crushed violet and rose, the palate vigorous with cherry, terracotta and anise. Firm but delicate acid and tannin provide the expected structure; the finish long, lifted and persistent.
Awards: Silver Medal - Decanter World Wine Awards: "Vanilla, smoke and cinnamon nose. An elegant and polished palate with flavours of spice, tobacco, truffle and ripe fruit. Good use of new French oak. A complex well-structured wine."
