Galli Estate Artigiano Nebbiolo, Heathcote 2012 $38
Don’t be put off by the typical nebb light, developed brick-red colour, this is a charming medium-bodied, savoury red wine with ample supple tannins and an elegant structure. Red fruits and dried herbs to sniff. A superb food wine. (14 per cent alcohol; screw cap.)
