The 2018 Lechuza Nebbiolo pours a deep burgundy color with cherry-red undertones. The nose offers complex aromas of cigar tobacco, tar, and saddle leather, with spice, anise, gardenia, cracked pepper, vanilla bean, and pralines notes. It has a round mouthfeel with prominent tannins and an assertive acid presence, delivering flavors of red fruits, worn leather, tobacco, and anise.
