Community Tasting Note

    April 13, 2019 - Intense smell right from the opening. Complex and classic nebbiolo aromas with beautiful red cherries and raspberries. Also almonds, red roses, anise and spicy wood. Seducing and flirtatious while changing all the time. Savoury red berries on the plate, great acidity and very fine-grained and sandy tannins. It is like walking barefoot in silky sand on the Maldives versus the knotty and rocky Norwegian beaches one can meet in other young more rustic nebbiolos. Big mouthfeel, but yet nothing superfluous here. 14% alcohol is well integrated and everything is in great balance. Nice drying finish with good length. Very nice and seductive barbaresco on the elegant side. This is just brilliant now, but it will probably shut down if not too long. And probably it will wake up as an even more complex wine on the other end. Great effort!
