In a vintage impacted by frost, the clone mixture of the 2014 Nebbiolo is concentrated in the upper portion of our estate vineyard.Despite low yields, the remaining fruit was of excellent quality and underwent a lengthy post-ferment maceration of fifty days and two years in large format oak for ageing.

Garnet in colour with an orange tinge, a distinctive nose of plum, current, marzipan and herbal tones plus a hint of florals jump vibrantly from the glass. Sweet and savoury flavours play on the palate –red cherries and their sour counterpart, with redcurrants accompanied by herbal notes of dried rosemary and nutmeg. Soft yet firm tanninred in colour. Aromatic, lifted nose of vanilla, cinnamon and roses. On the palate, medium bodied sweet fruit envelopes the tannins. The tannins are soft, not aggressive or assertive at all but give great length to the palate.
