This is a small-ish winery, multi-generational, perched at the top of a hill overlooking the estate vineyards. Bring your vision to the surrounding hills, and they are literally covered with Nebbiolo vines in all directions. The winery does extended aging in large, old wooden casks – foudre. This gives the tannins a lush, rounded mouthfeel that caresses the palate. This wine is surprisingly drinkable now, but waiting will provide serious rewards.
From the Wine Enthusiast: “Aromas of rose, wild berries, leather and sunbaked underbrush come to the forefront. The wine was made with organically farmed grapes, and the palate shows an earthy elegance, featuring ripe cherry, blood orange, star anise and hints of truffle before closing on an iron note. Firm but refined tannins provide support. Drink 2027–2032. -- Kerin O’Keefe”
