Henschke The Rose Grower Nebbiolo 2021


Here is a wonderful example of how to manage and coax the best from the assertive tannins of this famous Piedmont variety. Yes, the tannins are there, they have to be, but the bright red fruits show a lift of rhubarb and cranberry with a little bright raspberry confection. I could drink a bit of this, it has that chalky ironstone and brick dust character you often find in the Barolos of Piedmont.
