When given ample time to open, this pretty Nebbiolo offers a long list of aromatic characteristics, starting off with a dusty note of white calcium that spans out to broad aromas of purple fruits and spice. However, that delicate mineral note is the wine's distinguishing factor, and it adds grace and enormous elegance to the finished results. You usually don't get this level of detail or finesse in the hot years, but this wine pulls it off without a hitch.- ML

Sweet red cherry, orange peel, cinnamon and star anise give the 2017 a decidedly exotic quality to play of its curvy personality. All the elements come together so effortlessly. The 2017 is beautifully done. This is such a pretty wine. -- Antonio Galloni

Perfumed berry, exotic spice and pressed rose mingle with a whiff of menthol and a toasted note.

Reflecting the nose, the firm, rather austere palate offers dried cherry, licorice and roasted coffee bean alongside assertive grainy tannins that grip the close. KERIN O’KEEFE
