$81

There’s purity and definition to the rose, cherry, strawberry and spice aromas and flavors that are draped on an elegant profile, with a terrific mineral underpinning. Harmony and finesse renders this red approachable now, yet this should improve with a few years of aging. Best from 2025 through 2047. 1,617 cases made, 300 cases imported.

Summary

Grape

Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo originated in Piedmont in Italy, where it remains the region's most important red grape. Its name comes from the Italian word nebbia, which means fog, a feature of the hills where the grape traditionally grows. Nebbiolo is thick-skinned, early-budding and late-ripening; it needs long periods of sunshine to ripen fully and is often planted on south- or southwest-facing hillsides for maximum exposure. The best examples come from calcareous marl vineyards, with some planted in sandy soils.
