This 100% Nebbiolo is an intense wine with serious depth and striking tannins that will mellow with some time in the cellar. Bright berry fruit (strawberries, raspberries, black currants) and spice appear first, followed by more savory hints of iron, leather smoke and tobacco. The Roero is a wine of significant character and complexity that will only continue to impress with age.
The 2016 Roero is an intense wine with serious depth and equally imposing tannins that call for at least some time in the cellar. Deeply pitched spice notes and bright red berry fruit appear first, followed by hints of iron, leather, smoke and tobacco that develop later. Above everything else, the 2016 is endowed with notable character and complexity. It should be even better than this note suggests in a few years' time.
