red with a palish rim. Musky aromas of red fruits, spices and dried
flowers; quintessential nebbiolo. Then sweet, velvety and perfumed in
the mouth, without being a bit jammy. The raspberry and floral flavors
are complicated by an intriguing suggestion of white fruit. This
complex and highly aromatic wine finishes with very fine tannins and
Amazing with Cambozola
The key to great wine is enjoying it with the perfect food. Have this wine with Cambozola cheese. Both are better together!
One of the best wines I have puchased
from wine access !! Wish I had bought all they had !!

A well-crafted and refined wine
Beautiful light brick red color in the glass that fades toward the rim. Very muted tannins for a young Nebbiolo. At first, thought I had accidentally opened a pinot noir! Soft on the palate and smooth the whole way through. A very refined wine, almost thin, but with great finish that brings it all into balance. So good it's quaffable, yet, pairs excellently with pasta bolognese. Probably wouldnt stand up to more powerful dishes, but this is definitely a wine you want a few bottles of. Can't speak for how it will age, but Id think it would be interesting to get a few years out of it. Not sure it will have the structure for longer term again, but who cares!
Great custome Service
After I placed my order the weather turned very hot. Not wanting to cook my wine in transit, WineAccess held up my order. There was communication back and forth as the summer wore on, still hot. To make a long story short, WineAccess upgraded the shipping to next day air, free of charge. The wine arrived the next day. My only complaint is that the communication could have been more complete and detailed so that I would have had some idea as to from where it was to be shipped. This would have given mme a better understanding of the shipping problem.
NICE ITALIAN RED
THE WINE APPEARED THIN BUT HAD LOTS OF FLAVOR, IT DID OPEN NICELY AS OUR MEAL PROGRESSED. IT WAS A VERY DRINKABLE RED TABLE WINE.
ok wine with a little acidic finish . probably needs some aging.
Italy, like France, offers a world of wine styles within a single country: dry
Italian white wines ranging from lively and minerally to powerful and full-bodied; cheap
and cheerful Italian red wines in both a cooler, northern style and a richer, warmer southern
style; structured, powerful reds capable of long aging in bottle; sparkling wines;
sweet wines and dessert wines.

Nebbiolo based wines made outside the Langhe hills are often lost in the commotion over Barolo and Barbaresco. The provinces of Vercelli and Novarra in the northern reaches of the Piedmont area are home to wines like Carema, Ghemme, and Gattinara. The latter two wines are mostly Nebbiolo, which as traditionally been blended with...
