2016 Ravensworth Nebbiolo hilltops, australia
$42

Nebbiolo from Hilltops, NSW.
Source of Grove Estate. Whole berry ferments, in wooden vats, spend eight months on skins. Then pressed out and into Stockinger, large format oak for 14 months. Serious handling.
Sweet spice, pepper, clove and cinnamon, dark cherry and some herbal detail. A serious kind of vibe to kick off. Shows some flesh but quickly takes you to tannin town. Firm wreaths shoulder the cherry and amaro flavours, a good dusting of spice follows on from the chew. There’s a modern feel to it, but all that savouriness and succulent, fine acidity shows you what’s what. Top notch. Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
