Top Nebbiolo Tasted 5/13

5. Cascina Delle Rose Langhe Nebbiolo (2012)

« Prev Next » 5 of 10
Shows a woodsy, butchers wax, watermelon rind aroma on the nose followed by a white cherry note, and then savory, briar wood top and emerging rose petal top notes. .A little tight in the mouth with a big tannic structure that sits just above the fruit today and just clips the finish. there’s great acidity here, which helps to lift the fruit on the plate and adds some softening material to help cover the tannins with big cherried fruit and spicy soil notes on the back end and through the moderately long, pure red fruited finish. Needs a bit more time but this should be very good. 90pts

List It
  • 208625xotravel I would add to your list 2010 Sobrero Langhe Nebbiolo. Graceful blend of earth, minerals, tea, cherry fruit & hint of pepper. Could pass as poor man's Barolo. The 2005 is even better.
