About

91

From a co-op founded in the 1950s, this is a good introduction to the Nebbiolo grape that won’t break the bank. Nebbiolo’s signature tar and roses perfume is on show, partnered by red and black fruits, and the palate has the firm tannin structure you’d expect.

90 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Fruit for the 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo is completely sourced from vineyards that are officially registered to make Barbaresco. Clusters are selected from the youngest vines and from the lower vineyard parcels (or other spots that do not meet the more stringent Barbaresco standards). This vintage shares some obvious similarities to 2011 in that the fruit is very ripe, round, supple and immediate. The wine is an absolute pleasure to drink right now, and it should hold for another five years without too much hassle. The alcoholic power is apparent (at 14.5%). The wine is a subtle shade darker in appearance with soft tannins and intense fruit. This wine gives us a very good sneak peek at what the 2015 Barbaresco expressions will be like.
