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.
