Tuesday, August 18, 2020 - Quest to complete my tasting of all DOCG of Italy; 6/5/2020-8/31/2020 (Home in NL and holiday home in Maremma / Italy): Medium ruby color. Cherry, leather with some hints of dried herbs and violets. Full bodied with dusty layered tannins lots of ripe fruit and fresh acidity. The finish is very long and persistent.

This is a much bigger wine than I expected based on its price-tag. Maybe just a bit short on complexity but this might develop over time. There is certainly plenty of structure left to age for a long time to come.
Drink now - 2030.

Another addition to my DOCG list. It is actually quite weird: I have had so many Nebbiolo based wines but never a Roero. And this particular one proves that I have been missing out on something!
