Mushrooms, rose pedals, red fruits, high intensity on the nose. Delicious!

Very nice but not amazing. Aromatics are incredible, but on cork pop the palate is a touch muddled. With a solid hour decant this comes together quite nicely. Lots of dark fruit, leather, decent acid on the finish. Quite tasty with some good steaks.

Lovely aromatic wine from Gaja. Good to drink now with a brief decant but pretty sure this will hold up for a long time if you choose to keep. Went quite nicely with some dry aged ribeyes.

We had two bottles from the same case and there was a little variation Nose: Medium intensity, a bit of that floral rose petal tar character from Nebbiolo. Second bottle more open then the first tho intrerestingly. Still some green pyrazine characters with little tietrtary aromas. Not as fragrant as I was expecting it to be though. Palate: woo still young. Medium + body and tannin. There's a touch of oak, maybe it's cause I'm just getting over a cold but it all tasted a bit too austere for me. Finish was medium, acid medium which is good. Still has life. Tldr: Nebbiolo still too young at 20 years.
