Palmina 2009 Nebbiolo "Rocca", Santa Barbara County
Steve Clifton is the master of Italian wines in California. His Rocca Nebbiolo can stand up to the best from Piemonte with its intoxicating nose of ripe raspberry and rich rose petal. This wine drinks like a beautiful Barbaresco, full of feminine charm with lovely aromatics and florals for days. Subtle notes of tar, leather, and hints of Peko tea make sure you know its true Nebbiolo. So many layers with texture and length make this beauty worth every penny. Treat yourself with a nice cut of Piemontese beef and be prepared to be wowed!
