Structured but elegant, this opens with a classic Nebbiolo bouquet of crushed flowers, perfumed berries, leather, spice and balsamic. The ethereal palate weaves together juicy red cherry, mint, cinnamon, clove and alpine herbs all supported by silky, smooth tannins. It's already tempting, but hold for additional complexity. Drink 2018–2038.
