About the wine

Tasting notes

Mid ruby with orange tinges. Still a little closed, with sweetly perfumed raspberry fruit slowly emerging. Succulent raspberry-fruit palate with tasty tannins. Salty, minerally notes on the finish. Needs and deserves plenty of time in the bottle

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!
