From the highly regarded Bruno Giacosa, the newly arrived 2015 vintage of the Nebbiolo d’Alba is a very good wine. The knowledgeable team at East End Cellars in Adelaide put me in this wine’s direction. In the glass, there are sour cherry and earthy aromas. The palate has grippy tannins softened by an edge of sour cherry fruit, fresh acidity and mid range length. Double decanted several hours prior to serving. I would just decant it next time. Rating: Good to Very Good. Abv: 14%. Price: $80+.
