2019 Linea Retta Nebbiolo
Ripe cherry, orange peel and light chocolate at the end. Full-bodied, tight and focused with a long, flavourful finish.
Langhe Nebbiolo is generally considered a junior version of Barolo and Barbaresco. It shares much of the full bodied character, structure and aromas of its bigger siblings. Winemaking tends to be broadly similar in terms of process. DOC regulations for Langhe Nebbiolo allow for up to 15 percent of other indigenous grape varieties, such as Barbera and Dolcetto.
This wine was made in the La Spinetta winery in the Piemonte region of northern Italy as a joint project by Giorgio Rivetti and Larry Cherubino.
