Produttori del Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2018
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Langhe|

As a palate teaser before this lovely flight of Riservas from Produttori del Barbaresco, I am delighted to start off with the delicate and fine 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo. Showing a light ruby color, this wine takes baby steps with hints of wild rose, dried blueberry, crushed limestone and powdered licorice. It sports a fragile, fine texture. If you crave for a basic and absolutely satisfying taste of pure Nebbiolo, look no further.
Rose and wild berry aromas lead the way, while the palate offers ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and a hint of iron. It's full bodied but accessible, thanks to pliant tannins and fresh acidity.
Macerated cherry, eucalyptus, tobacco, white pepper and tar flavors combine in this wiry red. There is fine purity to the fruit. The balanced tips toward the tannins now, so decant or age a little longer. Drink now through 2024. 14,000 cases made, 6,500 cases imported.
Succulent red cherry, kirsch, mint, rose petal and spice notes all grace this super-expressive, mid-weight Langhe Nebbiolo from the Produttori del Barbaresco cooperative. The 2018 shows the open-knit style of a radiant year in its alluring, inviting personality and sheer appeal. It is especially fine this year. Then again, all the vineyards that go into this wine are Barbaresco-designated sites. The Nebbiolo was aged first in steel and then spent a few months in cask, which really brings out the fruit.
