This radiant savory mountain Nebbiolo opens with enticing scents of wild berry, flint, smoke and a whiff of alpine herb. It's elegant and focused, delivering crushed raspberry, Marasca cherry, tobacco and star anise alongside taut refined tannins and bright acidity. It's already tempting but will develop even more complexity over the next several years or more. Drink 2020–2032.
