“Aromas of menthol flint crushed herb leather and a balsamic note come together in the glass. Smooth and vibrant the elegant palate delivers dried cherry strawberry star anise pipe tobacco and mineral framed in polished tannins and bright acidity. Hold for even more complexity. Drink 2017–2027.” – WE, 93pts.
Italy’s best kept treasure. Nebbiolo produces some of the greatest wines in the world, but is hardly planted outside of its home country. Famous to Italy’s Piedmont region, look for these twin stars that are 100% Nebbiolo: Barolo and Barbaresco. This renowned grape produces glorious red wine containing complex flavors with high acid and tannin, allowing these babies (in the right hands) to age for years to come. Grab yourself a bottle, or three, and see for yourself what these wines can do!
