Garnet red color and intense, pleasing bouquet offering soft fruits (raspberry and blackberry). Dry, balanced and harmonious on the palate.
Juicy red fruits dance on a brooding foundation of licorice, exotic spices, warm cigar wrappers, smoky minerals, and pressed flower petals in this approachable, pretty '14 Nebbiolo d'Alba. Velvety and caressing, this wine snuggles the palate with chewy tannins, making for an elegant, enjoyable drinking experience. Giacosa springs this wine from old-vine Nebbiolo grown in prestigious vineyards by farmers with whom the estate has longtime relationships; it's crafted to provide an early-drinking yet aristocratic version of the emblematic Piedmont grape.
