2009 Nebbiolo

     The 2009 Nebbiolo is a Best of Class and Gold Medal award winning wine that showcases all the classic characteristics of a nebbiolo. Its intoxicating aromatics open up with cinnamon, nutmeg, dried flowers and leather. Flavors of black cherries, licorice, nutmeg and clove with an earth and leathery background continue with pleasant acidity and well-structured tannins. The finish is long and silky. This wine will complement a great variety of foods and age wonderfully for many years to come.
