Damilano Nebbiolo d'Alba 2007

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

The 2007 Nebbiolo d'Alba is a big, bold wine packed with ripe fruit, sweet spices, licorice and leather. The wine combines elements of super-ripeness, rich texture and classic Nebbiolo structure in a style that is undeniably appealing. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014.

The color is bright ruby red with garnet highlights; the nose is light, tender and delicate with hints of violet and red fruit. Dry on the palate with good body. It has texture and character. Velvety and harmonious.

The 2006 Nebbiolo d'Alba is made from Monforte and Barolo fruit. It sees malolactic fermentation in steel and subsequent aging in French oak. The tannins come across as a little rustic, which is normal for Nebbiolo at this price point. Still, this is a pretty, fruit-driven Nebbiolo to drink over the next few years, preferably at the dinner table, where the wine is likely to offer its greatest pleasure. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011.

Aromatic with plum and Indian spices. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Delicious already, but better with another year of bottle age. Best after 2008.

Finally, an affordable Nebbiolo! The legendary grape makes a rare appearance in a wine meant to be drunk young. Decant to soften tannins and allow the famed rose and tea aromas to develop.

Nebbiolo for a song. For consumers accustomed to paying $50 for their Barolo habit, or for those seeking an introductory Nebbiolo, this wine is the real deal! Medium- to full-bodied, ripe berry fruits fill out on the palate with intoxicating aromas of strawberry, blackberry, coffee and plum. Yummy ripeness, but without the wimpy New World finish - firm tannins give the wine a satisfying, chewy finish.
