A Nebbiolo from the steep vineyards of Valtellina, this opens with aromas of crushed violets, perfumed berry, flint and a whiff of Alpine herbs. The bright palate delivers crushed sour cherries, juicy raspberries, grilled sage, tobacco and a hint of vanilla alongside racy acidity and polished tannins. Enjoy through 2020.
