This continues to be a stellar buy at under $20, and the riper 2009 vintage has added another notch of fruit ripeness...

A personal favorite at this price point. Slightly garnet in colour, this medium light bodied wine shows hints of ripe red berried fruit, black cherry and woodsy spice. Surprisingly complex with balanced medium plus acidity and dry dusty tannins.great lingering finish.

Medium-pale garnet in colour. Still restrained because of its youth, but nonetheless developing with a mixture of red cherry, saddle leather, rosebud, rhubarb and savory spice. The acidity lift the body to a medium-light weight and the tannin is still coarse – typical of a nebbiolo. Good length. Decant for an hour if enjoying now, or hold for the next 5 years as it is likely to improve. How can you beat this pricepoint?
