Editorial Reviews for Mauro Molino Nebbiolo Langhe DOC
Candied, herbal, rootbeer, medicinal, chinato, powerful, a bit dense in the mouth, well made but boring, some nice fruit, some herbal twists but blocky and inelegant. It’s a lot of wine though,
External Reviews for Mauro Molino Nebbiolo Langhe DOC
Piedmont sits in the foothills of the Swiss Alps, and Nebbiolo is the king of Piedmont. Truffles are an inherent flavor in the earthy side of Nebbiolo. This red is firm and food-oriented; serve alongside grilled steak and root vegetables drizzled in truffle oil.
This Nebbiolo shows a deep ruby color and an intense nose of berries and plums. Pleasing flavors of blackberries, blueberries and violets.
The Langhe region in Piedmont is next to the Barolo and Barberesco regions, and they all grow Nebbiolo. But the Langhe Nebbiolo is half, or more, the price of the ones from their neighbors. Aromas of blackberries and spice are abundant in the glass. On the palate, flavors of tea and mint are intertwined with sweet tannins. For those of you looking to try a Nebbiolo but canrsquo;t afford the $50 for a Barolo or Barbaresco, try this Molino from Langhe; at this price you could get two or three of them.
For many years, Mauro Molino has been recognized as one of the top wineries in Piedmont, noted mostly for its Barolo. This wine is made with Nebbiolo, the same grape used to make Barolo. Rich, floral aromas with blackberry and cassis; medium-bodied with very soft, round tannins. The best thing about this wine is that because it is not labeled Barolo, it is half the price of wines of the same quality.
Beginning with its beautiful garnet color, this Nebbiolo is truly a gem. There is a wonderful clarity to this light-bodied wine that offers distinct aromas of cinnamon, raspberry and plum on the nose. On the palate you will find sour cherries and candied cranberries present, balanced with acidity and robust tannins. Decant this wine for 30 minutes and then enjoy.
The estate's 2001 Barolo normale is a pretty, accessible wine, displaying spice, toasted oak, licorice and sweet fruit in a mid-weight style with much overall harmony. It is made from a blend of vineyards in Barolo, Perno and La Morra and aged in equal parts barrique and cask. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2013.
Colour: Light red. Nose: Fruity, typical of Nebbiolo. Flavour: Fruity, fresh, supple tannins. Serving suggestions: Pasta and rice dishes with meat sauce, roast veal.
