The Wine Front – If you’re in an Italian state of mind then we’re pretty much into ‘fill your boots’ territory here. This is the kind of ‘go to’ wine you’re always going to want to have on hand. It’s all licorice root, dark cherry, earthen/ferrous-like spice and coffee grounds, the acidity refreshing and the tannin authentically firm. It’s not earth-shattering but it’s damn good buying and drinking.
James Suckling – This shows phenomenal structure to it with fantastic linear tannins that take this wine deep and long on the palate. It’s buttressed by a beautiful balance of ripe fruit characterized by strawberry and orange-peel undertones. Chewy and focused. Needs four or five years to soften and show its true greatness. Available in February 2019. Try in 2022.
The Wine Front – Raspberry, cherry, autumnal and leafy mulchy things, a little aniseed and cedar too, slight perfume of rose and mint. Squishy red fruit, light drag of tannin, some blood orange tang, and a finish of sappy, rusty, but solid length. The Wine Front, 21 December, 2021
Huon Hooke – Medium to light brick-red, typical Nebbiolo colour. The bouquet shows roast-meat and dried flowers, including roses; very savoury and mellow, seemingly mature for its age. The wine is light to medium-bodied with very soft, fine tannins and gentle weight. Remarkably approachable and easy drinking, with typical Nebbiolo flavour and savouriness.
