Sobrero Langhe Nebbiolo 2012 750ml
Nebbiolo is a native Italian varietal that is notoriously difficult to grow outside of Piedmont. Known in its more lauded forms as Barolo or Barbaresco, Nebbiolo has been compared to Pinot Noir for its elegance and wide range of expression. The Sobrero family has farmed sustainably in the Langhe, one of the best regions for Nebbiolo in Piedmont. This is their most basic expression of Nebbiolo that has all the care and attention that the Barolo and Barolo Riserva would receive. A solid tannic structure belies the light color of the wine with subtle red fruit on the palate. The gorgeous bouquet lingers on the nose as does the long, balanced finish.
