I'm a sucker for good Nebbiolo, and this definitely makes the cut. Red florals entwine, hints of wet gravel, beetroot and spices. The palate is rich and powerful, no shrinking daisy but completely balanced exuding power and flavour in harmony. Layers of raspberries, beetroot and savoury spice seduce the palate with a finish of drying tannins and great length.
"From an early 1990s planting of nebbiolo at Macclesfield. Nine weeks on skins. 58 dozen. So much going on here. Overt rust-like notes, clear licorice, cocoa characters, fragrant herbs. It starts off all strings and rust but as it breaths the sweetness of the fruit becomes more and more buoyant, though of course the wine’s various complexities continue in tandem. There’s a lot to keep you interested here. It’s fragrant, sturdy, varietal, juicy and – importantly – tannic. As I sat with it I found myself liking it more and more and more."
