“The king of wines and the wine of kings” – strewth, quite the marketing angle! But, it must be said, the Nebbiolo grape is a truly stunning variety than combines power, finesse, class and a unique palate. Two years in oak, followed by a further 12 months bottle aged.

What George says about this wine...

"Another true Italian beauty. The aromas are plummy with cherry, licorice and balanced floral spice. It is dry with refreshingly balanced acidity and a firm tannic backbone. Dark fruit flavours linger on the finish. A really powerful, moreish and ripe wine. This is something a little special.

Serve with game meats and mushrooms."
