Clear, bright, purple red with clearer tannic nuances around the glass edge. Aromas are persistent, fragrant and wide open exalting the fruit of the wine. It is also rounded by evident perception of strawberry and raspberry, typical in this wine. Flavors are also persistent with the classic light tannin astringency of Nebbiolo, very well rounded by the wood aromas. Lovely finish, persistent and stimulating.
"The 2009 Langhe Nebbiolo is surprisingly dense and muscular. Sweet red cherries, flowers and licorice come to life in the glass. Despite the wine's richness, it also possesses plenty of Nebbiolo grip on the finish. The dense, ripe style is very nicely balanced here. This is a jewel of a wine."
The Wine Advocate
"Good medium red. Musky, slightly reduced aromas of wild strawberry, plum, coffee and rose; there's something a bit pinot-like here. Then plump and sweet but not heavy, with a silky texture to its red raspberry flavors. Big and chewy on the back end, finishing with serious tannins and lingering sweetness. Lovely accessible nebbiolo."
