Filippo Gallino Roero Superiore 2004 DOC

From Canale, Piedmont, Italy, and produced with 100 % Nebbiolo grapes, this Roero Superiore is a dense garnet color with warm outer edges. On the nose are scents of violet and roses, but at a very subtle level, in other words, not a punch in the nose and, a core of summer fruit, cocoa, an almost undiscernible suggestion of spice with complex undertones of leather. Absolutely balanced tannins, and a long finish.
