Bn edge. Very charry oak, toast, slight tar & roses, slight florals. Similar to nose, slight empty, but with berry and rose petals, gritty & drying tannins. Food : filled out the palate, made the wine more interesting, & surprisingly covered the tannins

Typical Nebbiolo with low fruit levels and firm tannins that doesn?t really soften with food.

Mid-deep garnet. Orange peel, leather and spice. Rich red fruit, leather and herb/spice flavours. Good mid-palate depth, sour acidity and fine firm and very dry tannins. Food: very good combination ? acid and tannins work well, complex flavours match the meat and the mayonnaise.

Light slight medicinal nose and palate. Quite tannic with little fruit on the mid palate. Dish helps as the wine appears less tannic but still lacks fruit.

Light red, brick rim. Floral, dark cherries, slightly leathery, showing varietal typicity on the nose. Med-full, dry, tannic, firm dark fruit balanced. Dry, cherry and roses on the finish. Long. Beef brought an earthiness to the wine, slightly pointed up tannins, but at the same time bringing out a juicy depth to the flavour of the beef

Medium brick red colour. Very attractive complex nose with a mix of vinous, leathery and spice floral aromas. Delicious savoury note to the palate which is long and complex and shows great persistence of flavour. A wonderfully complex wine where the tannins came into beautiful balance with food.
