Community Tasting Notes (5) Median Score: 88 points

  • PNP

    Orange, amber, and dried prune coloration. Cherry, raspberry, and tropical fruit on the nose with some hay.

    First taste is almost tropical punch flavored with bright notes of citrus. Good dry mouthfeel, medium tannins throughout, and an acidic pucker upfront. Some light minerality and notes of gravel and olive coming in at the end of the relatively short finish.

    If you sit on this for a minute or so after sipping, a little something shows up... a hint of earthiness, mushroom, or truffle. It's delightful, but I almost didn't notice it. I wonder if these notes, given time, will become more pronounced and brought forward to counter some of the acid and fruit. If so, I will be excited to see what happens to this wine with age.

  • This is still a very young wine in need to age to really come together. It isn't disjoint, exactly, but each facet seems on it's own. There are macerated cherries, mint, herbs and some spices. There is a savory, herbal earthiness that haunts the edges. I think this will end up being really superb one day. I'd say 6-8 years or so.

  • Classic aromas and flavors in thie Nebbiolo blend. Already fairly open at this point, the wine combines fresh citrus notes on the nose, with medium+ complexity and persistence. Lovely, and bound to be even better with just 3-5 more years of rest; much more available today than the 2012. Now thru 2031. recommended+

  • { #TasteAltoPiemonte } Exciting wine, brimming with freshness, and personality. This is a traditional blend of Nebbiolo, Vespolina and Croatina; the wine is fermented in open-top Grenier casks, then aged in a combination (age/size) older oak. Both elegant and structured, this really serves up a lot of complexity and zeal today - should have a great future, too. Easily recommended+, and will no doubt prove difficult to leave alone in the cellar. Thru 2030.
