Heady scents of alpine herbs, char, red cherry and menthol. Succulent, sour cherry, cranberry, gummy tannin and more of the asphalt and then some dark, earthy character rolling tight and compact. Very fresh and pure-feeling with strong sense of regional character. (93) MIKE BENNIE, www.winefront.com.au

There's plenty to like here for both young modern drinkers who enjoy fresh, lightly styled reds, as well as nebbiolophiles who dig the aromatics of Nothern Italy's most prized grape. It has a beautiful ruby red hue and upon first whiff throws up plenty of bright new season strawberry, florals aplenty and a pinch of zesty spice. It's light and vivacious with just a sprinkling of powdery fine tannins. If you are drinking this in warmer weather, which I would highly recommend, keep it on the cooler side and serve with BBQ snags and charcoal chicken. Alex D
