This pours pale garnet - surprisingly mature looking for a 2008 - but then nebbiolo is not the most colour drenched grape... David Lawrason - LCBO, SAQ, BCLDB

I really love this one. One of my usual wines I drink during the week. Nice Frangrance of cherry, leather, and spices. A nice dry medium body. Well balance and nice medium tannins. Very good length. I enjoy this wine with many of my Italian meals. Its a great wine at a very worthy price.

Typically pale red colour as is usually the case for Nebbiolo. Medium bodied, with some still noticeable tannin. Falvours veer toward the red fruit spectrum (cherries, cranberry). Certainly recognizable Nebbiolo, and a good one at that...just not a great one. Give it a year or two. Tasted June 2012.
