Vietti Nebbiolo Langhe DOC Perbacco 2007
Winemaking: this is a wonderful vintage for Perbacco. The 2007 Perbacco is made from parcels in : Bricco Boschis, Ginestra and Mosconi (aged together), Liste, Brunella, Crocetta, Pernanno and the youngest vines in Fossati, Ravera (planted in 2000) and Scarrone (planted in 2003). The average age of the vines is 35 years, and the plants per hectare are 4.500. All vineyards are vinified and aged separately. 18-28 days of alcoholic fermentation between 28°-35°. It follows the malolactic in stainless steel tank and barrels. This wine offers up generous fruit along with menthol, spices and hard candy, showing notable intensity while retaining an essentially mid-weight style. Round, suave tannins add to the long and refined finish.
Decanted for 1 hour. Pours a bright clear deep red color with some lighter pink hues around the edges. Lots of red cherries, strawberries and charred wood smells. Big nose. Starts off with ample amount of cherries, raspberries and strawberries. In the middle, there are undertones of wood, smoke and tobacco. On the back end, just like the middle, but really intensified. Leaves a long lingering taste on the palate with some dry tannins. Nicely structured. Can pair nicely with traditional italian dishes, especially red gravy.
