Prunotto Nebbiolo d'Alba, Occhetti, 2001

Brilliant ruby, quite translucent with just a hint of garnet at the edge. Lively smoky plum with bittersweet cherry aromas open into light porcini and tar. Floral, open and expansive with a bite. Firm, but very drinkable now with good complexity and balance. Spiced burnt oranges with sweet cherry fruit flavors carry the firm, but well integrated tannins. Delicious and ready to drink now.
