Tasting Note:

Astonishing. A special wine that manages to surpass the great reputation of Clerico’s Ginestra bottlings. Rich, multi-layered and powerful but with a generosity and harmony not normally seen in young Nebbiolo let alone those of Clerico! Intense dark plum, cherry, cherry stone, bramble and mineral flavours, powerful satin-textured tannins, long haunting cherry blossom characteristics on the finish. Aged in 80% new oak but the wood characteristics seem to be completely overwhelmed by fruit. Fabulous stuff.
