2011 Nebbiolo "Punta Exclamitiva"

Clendenen Family Vineyard - SMV

This is our “reserve” Nebbiolo. The wine, though aged in barrel for five years, has fresh floral notes and shows wild strawberry and plum aromatics. The mouth filling texture accompanies dried cherry flavors which transition into a clean bright finish with good acid balance. Score 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Score: 91 points  "Medium garnet, the 2011 Nebbiolo Punta Exclamitiva has a very "Nebbiolo" nose of dried red and black cherries, old leather, tobacco and chocolate box nuances with notes of sage, scrubby earth and dried cranberry. It's medium to full-bodied with lovely layers of dried fruits and amaro-like spices in the mouth, framed by firm, grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing very long and very savory. Yes! Jim Clendenen says, "I would blame most New World failed efforts of Nebbiolo on poor clonal material." His Nebbiolo spent more than five years in barrel, "the way I believe a riserva wine should be."
