Nebbiolo, the grape fit for kings. Rarely do we see the feminine side of Nebbiolo, which is one with ripe tannis and lush fruit without being overblown. That is certainly the wine here. The Nebbiolo hails from a .62 acre single vineyard named Ascheri, located in the La Morra area of Piedmont. This is a very pleasant and approachable Nebbiolo.
The softer side of this grape is rarely seen. Deep ruby red in color with a slight orange edge. Harmonious, well-balanced aroma, a pleasant blend of floral, fruity, and soft spicy scents, with a finish of rose, violet. Fresh, lively bouquet, with harmonious tannins and alcohol and balanced acidity. Soft, elegant, and full-bodied with a very long finish. Redolent of freshly macerated red berries, raspberry, and redcurrant. There is no shortage of things to admire in this delicious, immensely pleasing Nebbiolo.
