  • Never disappoints. Pop and pour ready. No need to decant and lose some of the progression; no/little sediment. Great adid/tannin balance. Has many years left. Great red fruit, spice.

  • Decanted for 30 mins. Medium ruby color with great clarity. Really aromatic on the nose with notes of black tea, baking spice, cinnamon, cherry cordial, fresh cut flowers, orange zest. Wow. The nose was explosive and continued to evolve over the course of the night. On the palate the wine was a bit tight at first with a lot of acid and tannin keeping some dark red cherries, pomegranate and baking spices in the background but the wine opened up after about 90 minutes. Dry mouthfeel and finish. This wine is enjoyable now but I think has 93-94 pt potential in a few years.

  • Søte, røde bær med en floralt preg av en blomsterbukett på tredje dag etter innkjøp. Kirsebær og moreller, jordbær og svakt preg av lær og fat. Søtt og fruktig anslag. Klart og intregert fatpreg med vanilje. Fyldig vin. Moden, sunn frukt, god friskhet og kornfin og klar tanninstruktur som tørrer fint i en meget lang ettersmak.

  • I was hoping for fireworks on this, but it was not meant to be. I left this open for 24 hours and it still revealed very little. From what I could gather there was certainly a rich cherry and blackberry blanket wrapped around a dusty/metallic core. The tannins and acidity were quite firm. The nose was non-existent. This was well made Nerello but I personally would wait a few more years before even thinking of approaching it again. If you do decide to pop this now, make sure to drink it with food!

  • Nice, funky nose of earthy black cherries and black ash. Intense, mouth-filling texture with ripe red berry fruit which gives way to a rustic yet suave finish with complex notes of ash, minerals and some oak. Juicy, succulent with good acids and really interesting. Similar to a ripe red Burgundy in texture but with an Italian finish. Really needed to be open for a couple of hours to show its stuff and it was better on the second day. I like this for its QPR.
