This opens with a beautiful Nebbiolo nose of red rose, red berry, earth and mineral. The elegant palate delivers bright, juicy, wild cherry and raspberry flavors layered with mineral, white pepper, clove and licorice. Firm but refined tannins and fresh acidity make this surprisingly approachable now, but it will be even better after 2016.
