Rich and spicy

Longview Vineyard Saturnus Nebbiolo 2015, Adelaide Hills, AUD $50

The colour is typical nebb medium brick-red, the bouquet very appealing, with dried flowers, dried herbs and spicy touches, red fruits hiding beneath. It’s medium to full-bodied, with appealing richness and texture, complex flavours and ripe tannins. A wine of persistence and gravitas. It’ll come into its own with food. (Diam)
