Luigi Pira Langhe Nebbiolo 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

The lowest parts of Margheria and Merenga planted specifically for use in Lange Nebbiolo fourteen years ago. These lower vineyards seem to hold more water in the berries so the wines come off as less extracted than higher plts, this vintage the extract is the maximum, same harvest time as barolo Lovely nose filled with pure Nebbiolo fruit, high toned, rose hips, a little agrumi, forest floor, porcini, wild cherry fruit. If you want to smell Nebbiolo, here it is! Lots of round slightly chewy tannins lend this some weight in the mouth and while this is a little short today, this is rather Barolo like on the palate. A powerful little Nebbiolo, tarry and really an impressive expression of the vintage with a killer nose. A damn fine wine but atypical in it’s power and depth. 92pts
