Giovanni Rosso Nebbiolo Langhe Rossotext

Giovanni Rosso Nebbiolo Langhe Rosso 2016

Piedmont, ItalyI often say to cabernet sauvignon drinkers that eventually they will make their way to nebbiolo, the great Italian grape variety used to make Barolo. Here is a wine that will hasten the transition. I’m not sure there is a better wine under $30 in the BC market. It’s better than last year and last year it was terrific. The nose is captivating with its fragrant rose petal and licorice notes. The colour and weight are pinot noir-like, and the palate is deliciously juicy and forthcoming from front to back. You can drink this now or cellar three to five years and beyond because it is perfectly balanced. Brava to Giovani Rosso and its commitment to making serious nebbiolo at all levels. Back up the truck. Consider this a top match with your holiday turkey dish.Tasted: 30 November 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
