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.
"Readers will find a more energetic, vibrant wine in the 2010 Langhe Nebbiolo. Black cherries, smoke, crushed rocks, licorice and tobacco are all woven together nicely. The 2010 doesn't have the immediate appeal of the 2011, but makes up for that with its considerable energy and delineation. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020."
