Vinous Rating: 89 (6/10/2021)
The 2018 Nerello Cappuccio releases an intense wave of spicy tart cherries and crushed cranberries with notes of white pepper and hints of animal musk. This is silky-smooth and pliant, showing herbal-tinged woodland berries and black stone mineral notes. The 2018 finishes a bit short yet has a pleasant inner sweetness that lingers. The textbook character of Nerello Cappuccio shines through here.
