    • Nebbiolo Langhe DOC 2018

      Nebbiolo Langhe DOC 2018

      A Nebbiolo for purists. In the fragrance pine resin, dried fruit and essential spices. On the palate we find sweet plums, juicy cherries, robust tannins and a fine mineral acidity. This drop requires a strong food companion and is in this combination a great pleasure! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Really polished and balanced with berries, cherries and spices. Hints of walnuts. Medium body. Creamy finish. A smoky note comes through." James Suckling

      "The Fontanabianca 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo shows a bright and tonic vibe that makes this a good choice for dinners at home with the family. The wine is open and approachable with lovely aromas of wild cherry, crushed flower and soft ferrous earth. The mouthfeel is lean and those Nebbiolo tannins are silky and satiny." Robert Parker

      "The 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo Montegrilli is incredibly thin and light, with little mass or density at all. It's very easy drinking and as clean as a whistle. This feather-light red is a treat. It's rare to see this sort of expression of Nebbiolo, and I love it. I'm thinking it might pair well with paper-thin bresaola on bread." Robert Parker

Dried cherry, game, licorice, incense and sweet floral notes give the 2016 striking layers of nuance. Light on its feet and gracious in feel, the 2016 is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next few years. The 2016 is all class." Vinous

    Things to know about
    Nebbiolo
     

    The northwestern Italian Nebbiolo is one of the noblest red grape varieties cultivated in Italy. Even before Sangiovese, it is the Italian variety from which most DOCG wines are produced. The name probably derives from the Italian "Nebbia" (fog), because during the harvest season in October in Barolo and Barbaresco morning fog often comes from the river over the vineyards. But the grape variety is already known with the term "mobile" (noble) were associated.

    The distribution of Nebbiolo is limited almost exclusively to Piedmont. Only in a single region of Lombardy is the variety also cultivated with economic success. The Nebbiolo is problematic and difficult to cultivate, as it places exceptionally high demands on sites and soils. It reaches the highest quality almost exclusively on steep, south- or south-west-facing sites with calcareous marl soils. The number of areas under cultivation is therefore limited.

    Mature wines are reminiscent of game, truffles, withered leaves and plums. The noblest embodiment of Nebbiolo is found in the DOCG wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. These are heavy products with up to 15% alcohol by volume. Depending on the quality level, the legislator has prescribed a minimum storage period of between three and five years for Barolo. Barbaresco must be stored for two to four years before it can be traded. Before the expiry of these deadlines, it is also no pleasure to drink the wines. But even after that, some bottlings have to be stored for years before they can unfold their full beauty.

    However, the Nebbiolo grape from Piedmont produces Barolo and Barbaresco as well as other expressive wines, which we present to you below. SUPERIORE.DE
