Giacomo Conterno Ceretta Langhe Nebbiolo 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Offers up red berries, mint, geranium, dried roses and herbs in a relatively soft, approachable style. The mid-weight Langhe Nebbiolo is already a touch forward, so it is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. This, too, is full of character, even if the modest quality of the vintage caused Roberto Conterno to bottle this as Langhe Nebbiolo rather than Barolo, undoubtedly the right call." WA 12/10 "There's a lushness about this red, from its floral- and berry-scented nose to the cherry, strawberry and spice flavors. This is beautifully balanced and lingers on the spice-tinged aftertaste...92" WS 04/11

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
