The Nebbiolo grape reigns supreme in Italy's Piedmont region. There,
the grape reaches its pinnacle in the form of Barolo and Barbaresco.
Langhe Nebbiolo is generally considered as a junior version of these two
world-renowned wines, sharing much of the full bodied character and
structure of its bigger siblings.
Unlike Barolo and Barbaresco, however, there are no regulations on
minimum aging when it comes to Langhe Nebbiolo, and that is true in the
case of this young Nebbiolo wine. Nevertheless, Lot 199 Langhe Nebbiolo
is in every way a true "Baby Barolo."
Made by the same great family-owned winery as our Lot 26 Barolo, this Langhe Nebbiolo is made from organic estate fruit. The young vines from which this Nebbiolo originates will eventually become vines destined for Barolo. So, get this baby Barolo while you can, before it grows up and is three times the price!
Brilliant garnet red in color with an aroma of violets, lush berry fruit and plums. Flavors of ripe red cherry emerge and a touch of spice on the finish.
