Coronamento is an Italian word and translates to “fulfilment of one’s dreams”. This is our reserve Nebbiolo.
A good vintage for the King Valley. We had good average rains during winter, which proved to be the foundation for excellent growing conditions during spring. Flowering and fruit set for all varieties was quick and even. The ripening season was nice and slow so maximum maturation of the fruit was achieved, resulting in wines of powerful aromatics and intensity.

Winery Tasting Notes
The 2005 Coronamento Nebbiolo is a less fruit driven wine with red liquorice, red plums, exotic spice, saffron and hints of leather, earth and toasted hazelnuts on the nose.
The palate has impressive power and grace, it is deep and even-handed with a wealth of ripe red cherry fruit flavours, supple, yet commanding tannins which are very long, even and juicy. This wine is an iron fist in a velvet glove that has many, many years ahead of it.
