Degustation notes

Light garnet colour. A lovely Nebbiolo nose, attractive spiciness with hints of clove. Chewy with distinctive oak barrel notes and red berry fruit. Good-quality, forward tannins. A harmonious, balanced structure, with a very long, fine finish – now perfect to enjoy.

Special notes

One of the great Italian red wines, produced from Nebbiolo grown around Barbaresco, Neive and Treviso near Alba. Winemaking prescribes two years in barrels, and four years for the Riserva appellation. It is this method which gives the wine its deep ruby colour that changes to garnet with age.

    Un vrai Barbaresco au nez et visuellement, mais en bouche il a un côté astringent et âpre assez désagréable. Il est fort mais manque d'arômes. Pas trop recommandable en somme...

    Für diesen Preis erhällt man sehr "viel" Wein. Die Fruchtigkeit ist in Nase und Gaumen sehr ausgewogen, weder sw noch ro Beeren dominieren, Tanine gut eingebunden, komplexes Bouquet mit ansprechendem Abgang. Säure dezent. Eignet sich sehr gut zum so geniessen.
