Castleng 2015 Coste della Sesia Nebbiolo Cascina Preziosa
A powerful, yet fine Nebbiolo, that welcomes you with comforting warmth, a whiff of spices, such as nutmeg, cardamom and cinnamon, relevant notes of dried roses, cherries, red plums and chocolate, a hint of viola and tamarind, old leather. A beautiful dark red robe. Strong tannins give it an athletic body: like many youngsters, it needs to age a little to find the right balance. Once it has reached it, it will be one of those companions you always like to have by your side: reliable, intriguing, comforting and never boring.
