La Spinona Langhe Nebbiolo 2019
La Spinona’s Langhe Nebbiolo is produced with fruit from the Barbaresco crus of Faset and Ronchi. The organically grown grapes are hand-picked, destemmed and then given a short pre-ferment cold soak. Fermentation and one year’s maturation take place in tank in order to preserve freshness of the fruit.
The wine appears ruby red in the glass, and has a clean nose of roses, raspberries and cherries. On the palate there is freshness, with dried cherries and those oh-so important – though approachable – nebbiolo tannins.
La Spinona’s 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo is a gorgeous, old school wine. Sweet pipe tobacco, crushed flowers, mint, spice and dried cherry all grace this deceptively mid-weight Nebbiolo. Sinewy tannins lend structure as well as energy. There is a lot to like, that is pretty clear.
