Cato La Promessa Nebbiolo 2015 (Hilltops, New South Wales) "...dark berry, floral, leather notes..."
"This is serious heavy duty nebbiolo that will have great appeal to lovers of Italian wine and food, the two indivisible. It will be up to this core to decide whether there are better things to do with life (and nebbiolo). This should persuade wine lovers who haven't had the money or opportunity to join the foray and do so." - 94 Points, James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
“This is spicy, meaty, fruity and beautifully lifted on the nose with dark berry, mature game, floral and leather notes, which lead to an elegantly weighted palate that is engaging and savoury with ripe fruit undertones. This stylish expression displays classic nebbiolo fine/firm tannins, giving the wine superb structure and length.” - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
There’s an enticing and complex bouquet of cherries, violets, roses and licorice.The palate has dark, chewy, long-lasting flavours; blackberry, cherries, tobacco and creamy strawberry notes. The palate is mid weight with well placed, finely ground, chalky tannins. Good acid with a fine long finish. - Winery Notes
