Pizzini La Volpe Nebbiolo 2017

Nebbiolo, beloved variety originally from Italy's Piedmonte region. Here, instead, from Victoria King Valley. Has the beautiful radiance, a garnet hue, redolent of cherry and pomegranate, spice tinged.

It's soft, encompassing, for a variety renowned for its tannin structure, it barely rates a mention. The aforementioned aromas flow onto the palate as flavour, again in that softened manner. 

It's not the most structured on wines, yet the combination of fruit presence and gentle tannin makes for a formidable combination - a versatile one at that. 91
