There is so much complexity here. It starts with a slightly smokey taste, fades a bit in the middle, then has an amazing cherry finish that kicks in and stays. While it is not quite as smooth as I would normally reward with a score of 91, the taste adventure more than makes up for it. At this price, give it a try.
This wine showed nice full flavour with elements of oak, blackberry and moderate earthiness. I would look for this again for the price.
Really enjoyed the rustic complexity of this wine. Lots of resinous fruit, grippy acidity and tannins make this a super enjoyable quaff for your favourite rustic meal.
Opening up with decidedly funky-meaty notes, and with a brick-red colour of dried blood, this Nebbiolo from Langhe, near the far more famous Barolo and Barbaresco, seems stale and uninviting. But give it some time to breathe, a couple of hours or even a full day, and it becomes a complex, intriguing wine with a food-friendly Italian roller-coaster of aromas and flavours of redcurrant, sour cherry, cranberry, earth, tar, leather, mushroom, and bitter herb. It's all too thin, and some of the funkiness remains, the fruit somewhat suppressed, but it's still a great value for interesting Piedmont.
