    Doctor Wine (Daniele Cernilli)

    Guida Essenziale ai Vini d’Italia 2021
    94/100
    Da uve Nebbiolo. Un anno in botti grandi. Granato luminoso. Avvolgente ed etereo, complesso e sfaccettato al naso, con note di rosa canina, pietra focaia, cassis, melograno, arancia rossa e cranberry, qualche accenno pi  speziato in sottofondo. Sapore deciso ma composto, con un perfetto rapporto fra salinit  e lieve astringenza tannica, corpo di ottimo peso e persistenza lunghissima. Un fuoriclasse nella sua categoria.

    A lovely, juicy red with cherry, strawberry and orange peel. Medium to full body, tight and round tannins and a flavorful finish. Plenty of delicious fruit here. Really fine. Drink or hold.

    Sparkling, lightening garnet red. Expressive nose with notes of raspberry, pomegranate and sour cherry, some saffron. Very good tension on the palate, juicy, fresh acidity, crunchy fruit, then opens with robust, dense tannins. Othmar Kiem, Simon Staffler.

    Tom Cannavan’s Wine Pages

    94/100
    From younger vines (planted in 2011) in the same Vigna Rionda vineyard that supplies the top Vigna Rionda Barolo, this is aged in large barrels of oak from the Fontainebleau forest for 12 months. Fine, pale colour, and a lovely delicate strawberry and raspberry note to the herbs and forest floor spices on the nose. Some floral top notes just developing. In the mouth it is structured, cool and correct: fairly tightly wound at this youthful stage, the surge of acdity through the mid-palate to join the fruit, and the taut, very fine tannins, giving lots of tension and linear focus. The spices, the hints of game and truffle, are just starting to develop, but it remains cool and elegantly concentrated and intense into the finish. Needs time. Tom Cannavan

    Though rich and creamy in texture, this red remains elegant, featuring cherry, raspberry, floral, flint and tobacco flavors. Firm and harmonious, with fine length. Drink now through 2024. 1,000 cases made, 400 cases imported. –BS

    Boasting macerated cherry, strawberry and leather flavors, this red is supple, yet offers a solid underpinning of tannins. Bright and balanced, with a juicy finish. Best from 2021 through 2035. Bruce Sanderson

    “The 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo Ester Canale Rosso has good elegance and grace. The raw, plump and rich red fruits is uncomplicated, making it a good wine for simple pasta recipes or wood-oven pizza.” Monica Larner
