Ricossa Barolo 2008

Clear, medium ruby in the glass. Medium intensity nose of cherries and prunes, wood and tar. Dry, strong acidity and medium tannins in a medium body. Sharp red and dark cherries and dried fruits with subtle oaking. Real bite from 14% alcohol. Medium length. Overall good; will have to try more Nebbiolo to give this a bit more context.

$39 at Kitsilano Wine Cellar. See Touchstone Wines.

Drinking this with Portobellos Stuffed with Creamy Spinach from Big Vegan.
