2007 Nebbiolo

This wine exhibits intense aromatics of violets, rose petals and leather with flavors of strawberries and black cherries. The mouthfeel is plush with softening tannins and bright acidity that makes this wine a wonderful accompaniment to hearty foods. The wine culminates with a long and lingering finish of lasting impressions. Aged in puncheons for 24 months and bottle aged for 1 year.
