John Loubser CWG Garibaldi Nebbiolo 2009 92 Points

Good color, typical Nebbiolo /Barbaresco/Barolo hue, primary, Pinot Noir like red fruits, cherries, raspberries and strawberry jam.
Barbaresco in profile, fresh and elegant, juicy, yet have Nebbiolo ripe tannic grip, savory, pure and precise, excellent oaking, high alcohol of 14% abv fully integrated, a food wine par excellence, hard to resist now, but will keep up to 2024+
