Deeply perfumed, pressed cherries and cassis are followed by light accents of exotic spice, and a note of crushed mineral. Dark fruited with the slightly chewy, ashen tannins you expect in traditional Nebbiolo with ripe cherries and firm acids on the finish. Olek is lucky enough to work with some of the very best sites in Piemonte. Attention-to-detail borne from doing everything himself.

Starderi is in Neive, not Barbaresco as such. Best known locally, possibly, for wines from Traversa and La Spinetta. Quite the perfume here. Cherry and raspberry, crushed fennel and rubbed mint, a little earthiness and spice. Medium bodied, supple and juicy, lovely clarity and freshness, almost a blackcurrant flavour, fine brick dust tannin, bright and long through the finish. Crisp. Beautiful. Such energy and drinkability. This is very good.
