A blend of 35% nebbiolo, 35% barbera, and 30% cabernet sauvignon. Clearly a very modern, forwardly fruity style wine, with generous sweet oak influence (though high quality oak), dense, dark ripe fruit, and light, leafy notes. Tasted blind, this could easily be put in the new world if not for the tart natural acids and gritty tannins. As such, this should appeal widely, and with salty protein, would really shine. Better in 1-2 years. Score 90 (John Szabo, MS, WineAlign.com, Jan 2013)

Ready now. Still a bit of bite, but fruit is ageing and is just still holding its charm

This is a lovely blend of old-world/new-world, and young/mature wine. It has elements from all of the above...

I think the expert reviews do a good job at describing the wine, so I'll leave it at that.
