It would be fair to say that this is the very best release of Giaconda Nebbiolo. It is an essay in how Nebbiolo is ideally grown at altitude to ensure varietal authenticity and depth of flavour. It opens with damp dewy roses, hints of sandalwood, a whiff of tar, then red fruits, freshly damp forest floor and well-worn polished leather notes. The palate is tensile with an army of fine tannins carrying the fresh red fruits long on the palate. Its charm is in the abundancy of fruit; its strength in its athletic, finely tuned tannin structure complemented by well integrated acidity. Intense and long, powerful yet elegant. The bar has been raised.
"Yum. This is real nebbiolo, with cherry, black-truffle, earth and walnut aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied with a solid center-palate and chewy tannins. Powerful finish. Real deal here."James Suckling
