Renato Ratti Nebbiolo d'Alba Ochetti 2010
Wine SpectatorMedicinal herb accents add a distinctive note to this cherry- and tobacco-flavored red. Shows weight and concentration, ending with burly tannins. Drink now through 2015.
Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Nebbiolo d'Alba Ochetti blasts across the palate with masses of jammy dark fruit, chocolate and French oak. With a little more attention to cooperage, this could be a meaningfully better wine. The purity of the fruit is striking, it just doesn't have the depth or juiciness on its own to stand up to the oak. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015.
