Tasting Notes:100% Nebbiolo. Deep ruby red in color with a slight orange edge. Harmonious well-balanced aroma, a pleasant blend of floral, fruity, and soft spicy scents, with a sapid finish of rose and violet. Fresh lively bouquet with harmonious tannins, alcohol, and balanced acidity. Soft, elegant, and full-bodied with a very long aftertaste. Redolent of freshly macerated red berries, raspberry, and redcurrant. Pair this wine with robust roasts and hard, soft, or well-aged cheeses.


Bright, full ruby. Alluring high-pitched perfume of blackberry and violet. Wonderfully juicy and light on its feet,with a black-peppery tang and brisk acidity to its penetrating flavors of blackberry, violet, and salty soil-driven minerality. Very 2016 in style, and with a pH under 3.5, this does not taste or feel like an Argentine wine. It needs more time in bottle to gain in weight and sweetness but has everything it needs to evolve slowly and gracefully. (made in concrete and aged for a year in 500-liter oak barrels, 30% new, then another year in concrete) ~91 Vinous Media.
