LANGHE NEBBIOLO PORRO
Style: SILKY RED
Main characteristic: HEADY AND JOYFUL
Langhe Nebbiolo. So, the same grape as Barolo and Barbaresco, often from exactly the same place, and from the same producers. Some of their wine, produced from younger vines, for instance, they will classify as Langhe Nebbiolo. Accessible price wise, and usually more immediately enjoyable. You don't need to wait 20 years for this one to finesse. 2017 was a hot, dry year in Piemonte, and it shows, giving a pleasant sweetness to the fruit behind the tannic structure. The aroma jumps from the glass, and the finish is long and delicious. This is a steal, and we bought the lot.
