Previously available for $25.00
Shorter macerations with lower temperatures than for Barolo, young vines from many of the same vineyards. Nice cherry fruit on the nose is well framed by licorice notes and a bit of spicy wood Fairly ripe and fruity on entry, this soft and broad in the mouth with good height on the palate. Rich with dark cherry fruit accented by nice mineral notes and a little licorice and tobacco on the back end, this shows a nice touch of firmness from masses of soft, supple tannins that lead to a long finish with a nice blend of savoriness and small red berry fruit culminating in a long lingering burnished cherry finale. 89pts

  • 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.
