Province: MendozaVina Alicia Nebbiolo 2006
Grapes: 100% Nebbiolo
Aging: 14 months in new French oak
With a complex if restrained bouquet of spices and tobacco, this wine promises much… and delivers up to a point. Still quite tannic and a little thinner than you might guess, this nebbiolo lacks the power of great Piedmontese wines. What is has is flavor, as the warm spices carry through some earthy terrain of blackberry bushes and moss.
