This shows classic Nebbiolo aromas of cherry, rose petal and spice, punctuated with a whiff of underbrush. The palate delivers delicious berry, spice and herb flavors with obvious mint notes. It's elegantly structured, with ample tannins, but is still tightly knit, so best to let this soften a few more years.
