Here's a bold, full-bodied red that opens with aromas of mature dark berry, Alpine herb, wild flower, and a whiff of menthol. The firm, radiant palate offers bright red cherry, baking spice, licorice and sage alongside bracing tannins and vibrant acidity. It's still young and needs time to develop but already boasts classic Nebbiolo sensations. Drink after 2021.
