Barbera D’Alba has been always considered the little brother in Alba compared to Nebbiolo and can produce extraordinarily fine wines and this is a perfect example. Full bodied with truffle and ripe cherry overtones and a beautiful middle palate. The vineyard that produces the Zio Nando, thanks to a terrain that tends towards sandy and its western exposure, permits them to obtain a wine with a powerfully fruity aroma, optimal colour intensity and extreme refinement. Drinking just about perfectly now but will also keep.
An extremely pleasing and drinkable wine, and although it has a high alcohol grade this never overpowers its fruity character. Its red colour has Bordeaux reflections and the slow trickle from the edge of the glass confirms its optimal concentration and good body. The palate is caressed by a smooth tannin content typical of the Nebbiolo grape and by a warm and enveloping flavour.
Extraordinary Barolo from this to-be giant producer, all the vineyards are farmed bio-dynamically letting the soils and vineyard sites do all the talking… and they do!
“Savory licorice, balsamic and eucalyptus flavours highlight this intense red. Cherry and kirsch flavors emerge midpalate as this finishes with energy and a mineral aftertaste” 93 Points - Wine Spectator 2014
A magnificent, perfumed, full bodied and concentrated Barolo from a very good vintage. This producer epitomizes what Barolo really is, full bodied and powerful with great depth, structure and longevity. Even though approachable now, it will cellar for a further 10 years, exactly what you would expect from a top notch Barolo. Irresistible now but it will only get better!
