I was expecting a lighter, easier wine when I tasted it last November. What I got was a very pleasant surprise. Fresh red fruits, orange peel, hints of licorice, and floral notes flow from the glass. Framing acidity that finishes with refined Nebbiolo tannins add complexity and lift. A medium-plus bodied effort that had good density, energy and concentration. Only natural yeasts and a touch of sulfur at bottling. The juice was on the skins for 18 days before it went into two, four-year-old 500-liter tonneaux. You really need to taste this alongside the ‘13s I hope you had the good fortune to grab from us last year. It is why one buys wines from multiple vintages so you can see what great winemaking does in years that require great skill. What a beautiful bottle of wine. Bravo Francesco!
