Ascheri Podere di Rivalta Nebbiolo d'Alba Bricco San Giacomo 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fruit from Verduno, 10 days on the skins then aged 6 months in Slavonian oak, and 6 months in stainless. Made in a “pinot noir” style! Slightly jammy raspberry fruit on the nose is light and bright with herbal top notes and intriguing nuances of leather, licorice, baking spices and apple pie. A bit dense on entry but the excellent acidity freshens the mouth. The tannins are wonderful, bright and crisp and very well balanced giving the wine a gentle elegant feel. The dark Nebbiolo fruit is faceted with a black spice edge and grace notes of wintergreen mint. This is youthful and ever so astringent but I like that! The finish is long with those very fine tannins offering some mouth grab. Long notes of earthy, cherry pit fruit linger on the cleansing finale. 89pts
