Wine Spectator 93 - A muscular style, revealing leather, licorice, cherry and sweet spice aromas and flavors. This has depth and a dense structure, finishing with intensity and fine length. The lasting impression is of sweet fruit.
Wine Enthusiast 91 - This opens with classic Nebbiolo aromas of ripe red berry, violet, leather, dark spice and a balsamic note. The chewy palate doles out fleshy Marasca cherry, licorice clove and a hint of pipe tobacco alongside robust but smooth tannins.
Garnet red in color, this wine offers elegant aromas of pomegranate, cherry and spices. It is both rich and soft on the palate -- with velvety, ripe tannins and a persistent finish. Pairs well with meat dishes and aged Piedmont's cheeses.
