If ever nebbiolo was a pinot noir lookalike, this is. With a purple-tinged medium-light red colour, it has a savoury smoky, raspberry, cherry bouquet tinged with violet and blueberry. The pinot resemblance stops at the structure, which is firmer and more serious. A delicious wine and a classic nebbiolo. Screw-cap;
13.5 per cent alcohol.
