Tasting Notes

The single vineyard wines were not made in 2019, meaning fruit usually marked for more expensive bottlings finds its way into this Barbaresco. Pale ruby-garnet in colour with Nebbiolo's quintessential harmony of floral, bright fruit and savoury tobacco and game. The palate starts with an airy intensity, with polished ripe red fruit and dried strawberries turning to cherry blossom, leather and cigar. The variety's tannins are on show but ripe and highly refined, making for a supremely balanced wine despite its ageing potential. Moreish and surprisingly approachable given its youth.
