A hard act to follow after the praise of the previous two vintages, but this one is up to it. Apart from the expected ‘savouryness’ of Nebbiolo, its acclaim comes from the quality of the tannins. Not monstrous, they just keep on building and drying after you swallow. A very seductive wine - love it! 14.5% alc/vol
