Wine EnthusiastIntoxicating scents of smoke, flint, dried mountain herb and woodland berry are just some of the multifaceted aromas you'll find in this dazzling Nebbiolo. It's extremely elegant, with a weightless intensity, delivering Marasca cherry, crushed strawberry, white pepper and tobacco framed by fine tannins. Vibrant acidity gives it impeccable balance, while a flinty mineral vein energizes the finish. Some may find this almost too ethereal while lovers of finesse, complexity and balance will be enchanted. Drink through 2027.
