Nebbiolo d'Alba - Piemonte - Italy

"Color: deep; Nose: intense; Aromas: woody, sweet, red berry, dried fruit; Acidity: lively; Sweetness: dry; Body: tannic; Finish: persistent; Overall: bold; Deep garnet color trying to soften to ruby with no chance. Deep and heavy, in a good way, for a D'Alba Nebbiolo. More barbaresco in style. Intense sweet berry with a bitty splash of anise, while sucking the moisture out of your mouth. Long barrique finish begs us to see if the next taste will moisten or dry you. Great now, does well with 60 minutes in the decanter. Get you some!
