A "terrific value" Nebbiolo from a revered producer of Barbaresco, Produttori. While this is released under the general appellation "Langhe", it follows Produttori's rule of over-delivering on quality: just as their Barberesco is a second selection from top single vineyards, so this regional Lange is mostly declassified Barbaresco juice. With elegant but deep and nuanced flavours, this is a racy and Barbaresco-like Nebbiolo.
Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Produced from young vineyards, this Nebbiolo has a young, fresh character that is ready for immediate consumption and is ideal for every day drinking. While labeled under the Langhe DOC appellation, this wine follows all the guidelines and achieves a quality level on par with the Barbaresco denomination. The first vintage of this wine was produced in 1978.
Ruby red colour. Bouquet of red fruit with notes of spices, white pepper and anise. The flavour is balanced with bright fruit. Pairs well with pizza, pastas with simple sauces, sausage, ham, charcuterie and spicy dishes."
90/100 Wine Enthusiast (2018 Vintage)
"Rose and wild berry aromas lead the way, while the palate offers ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and a hint of iron. It’s full bodied but accessible, thanks to pliant tannins and fresh acidity."
