Hello friends. Quick Christmas week reoffer today on a well-priced Barbaresco from a terrific Piedmont vintage. This bottle is drinking beautifully right now, and presents a wonderful winter-into-spring option:
Originally offered on January 26, 2015. Excerpts from original offer:
This wine is a ghost. It looks like it’s sold regularly in Europe (Italy, Poland, the Netherlands), but very rarely in the United States. This presents a good honest Nebbiolo nose from a cooler year, with lots of chamomile and red cherry along with streaks of menthol and tar. The palate is full of earthy notes and tea leaves, and as usual with Nebbiolo, this shines with a good meal much more so than as a cocktail wine. The structure seemed quite accessible for Nebbiolo, the tannins softer and more approachable than usual for this category. All that to say: this isn’t a wine you’d need to sit on for years and years; it brings plenty of pleasure, plenty of immediate gratification.
