|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Nebbiolo d'Alba|
A slightly intense, but brilliant ruby red. On the nose, delicate reminiscent of violets. Tastes dry, lively, and rather fruity when young, soft, and velvety after maturing in the bottle. Excellent accompaniment to roasts and grilled meats, mixed fry, fondues and medium mature cheeses.
Here's a fresh, easy-drinking red wine from Giacosa Fratelli, based in Neive in the greater Barbaresco growing area. The 2018 Nebbiolo d'Alba is quite beautiful and is a wine to drink straight out of the gate with a favorite Piemontese pasta dish such as agnolotti or tagliarin. This wine is all about simplicity and subtly, and that's exactly why it is such a natural food wine. It won't distract from any dish you pair it with, it will only enhance the flavors.
Cherry and plum fruit is offset by dense tannins in this firm red, with earth and licorice notes playing supporting roles, followed by an astringent finish. Drink now. 12,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.
