This offered some notes that are typical of Bartolo's wines, the high toned perfume of floral and green middle eastern spice married to the herb and dried soil tones one so frequently finds but the notes of celery, peanut and a hint of onion powder make me think that this has suffered some damage along the way. In the mouth this has some sweetness and a bit of unintrusive tannin but it lacks freshness and feels a touch cooked. Too bad

Since time immemorial Nebbiolo has been the most highly-prized vine and the wine-growing emblem of Alba and the Langa, and when it is matched with a great wine-making terroir it is capable of expressing itself at sublime levels in wines of remarkable personality, intense bouquet, great smooth tannins, and outstanding possibilities of evolution and resistance over time.
