Domenica Nebbiolo 2013
Close your eyes and you’re somewhere-or-other in Barolo, open them and the brickish bronzing of garnet colour is there in glass. No aping Italy, but the DNA of the homeland of the variety is there. Those tannins. I’ll stutter. Those tannins. Sheets, rippling, firm, corduroy-charry waves of chew that start from front and build to back then soften and dry things. There’s rose petals, tobacco, pot pourri, light red cherry character and tobacco, gum leaf and earth, all through an impressive succulent length… but those tannins. Far out, this is very good.
