The Nubiola presents with an intense ruby red color. On the nose it has both fruity and floral notes that go from the ripe red fruit to the officinal herbs. Soft, tasty and velvety at the same time, the wine leaves a note of sweetness and roundness typical of ripe grape with a slightly dry and astringent closure that distinguishes the Nebbiolo.

"The 2010 Barbaresco Nubiola is impeccable. Dark red cherries, freshly cut flowers, mint and crushed rocks take shape in the glass. The style is focused, tense and energetic. Sweet floral, tobacco and spice notes develop in the glass, adding depth, complexity and nuance. The Nubiola often presents a fairly classic array of flavors and textures. The 2010 has a little more volume and depth than normal, which serves to round out some of the contours. A blast of fruit and floral aromatics leaves a lasting impression."
