The 2012 Podere dei Ginepri displays a garnet red core that quickly moves to amber and orange hues on the rim. Classic Nebbiolo aromas of strawberry, redcurrant and sour cherry are laced with fragrance of the alps including pine needles, alpine herbs and fennel over notes of dried tobacco and leather, sandalwood, dried roses, a kiss of tomato leaf and dried spices. The medium-bodied palate combines high-toned Alpine freshness and tension with the grip we all adore in the varietal then unfolds to reveal bright redcurrant, sour cherry and a touch of pomegranate over exotic spices, pine, wet herbs, dried roses and the crisp flavor of Alps.
