About the wine

Tasting notes

Excellent fragrant lift on the nose with orange zest, dried flowers, tea leaves, peaches, sandalwood, fresh figs and a sprinkling of nutmeg. Dry iron-rich fruit on the palate textured with furry tannins, perhaps somewhat lighter than the average Barolo, but with gorgeous fruit purity that lingers on the finish.

The Grape

Nebbiolo

Often referred to as the king of red grapes, Nebbiolo is responsible for some of the greatest wines in the world. The regions of Barbaresco and Barolo, in Piedmont, Italy, create the most revered expressions of the variety and have set the benchmarks for the world over. Nebbiolo is quite light in colour, dry and delicate but packs a punch in aroma and flavour with notes of rose, tar, cherry, red berries, blood orange, licorice, leather, terracotta and earthy herbals. These wines have high acidity and high tannins, making them extremely age worthy that deepen in complexity over decades. Simply stunning wines!
