This wine opens with dried rose petal, violets and subtle star anise. The palate is full and generous with fresh raspberries, liquorice, red currents and the typical Nebbiolo tar notes we know and love. A great introduction to this alluring variety.
The Nebbiolo chosen for this wine was selected from a vineyard that naturally produces more floral, rose and violet notes and medium styled tannins. The Nebbiolo grapes were crushed and fermented in open-top fermenters for five days before the wine was press and stored in old, large barrels, which allowed the wine to retain its natural varietal characteristics.
