E. Pira and Figli - Chiara Boschis Langhe Nebbiolo 2021

Langhe, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyFrom the MGA Le Coste, in Monforte d’Alba, and grapes from the 'Bell of Respect' off the vineyards near their non-organic neighbours, this Nebbiolo is rooted in calcareous clays at 400m. After a stainless ferment, this aged 1 year in French barriques. Wild cherry, fragrant raspberry, dried roses is carried with lifted tart acidity, and framed with long, tightly grippy tannins. This finishes with crushed stones and cherry blossoms. Very charming, this medium bodied red is tasting beauty now (try with truffles) but will hold over the next few years easy.Tasted: 12 December 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
