#26 Enthusiast 100 2018
Return to List

Intoxicating scents of smoke, flint, dried mountain herb and woodland berry are just some of the multifaceted aromas you'll find in this dazzling Nebbiolo. It's extremely elegant, with a weightless intensity, delivering Marasca cherry, crushed strawberry, white pepper and tobacco framed by fine tannins. Vibrant acidity gives it impeccable balance, while a flinty mineral vein energizes the finish. Some may find this almost too ethereal while lovers of finesse, complexity and balance will be enchanted. Drink through 2027. Kerin O’Keefe
