Description

Nebbiolo Langhe, Piedmont is all the fashion at the moment. There are several separate areas within the region that make up Langhe, all producing Nebbiolo grapes, typically made into an earlier drinking more approachable style and for a fraction of the price compared to Barolo or Barbaresco, offering excellent value for money. Definitely worth seeking a few out and giving them a go. This Pio Cesare is a classic example and especially considering declassified Barolo and Barbaresco grapes have gone into this blend. Making it an even bigger bargain.

Smells

a perfumed and complex bouquet suggestive of a rose petal potpourri, with cedar and tar notes and a lovely herbal undercurrent.

Tastes

True to form, the Nebbiolo grapes have produced fine grain, gravelly tannins, combined with a crystalline acid thread which are both laced around abundant mid-palate fruit, giving texture and balance. Flavours of red berry fruits, cedar, baking spice, red earth, and a briary complexity are in perfect harmony with the tannin/acid framework. Delicious drinking now, especially if decanted just prior to serving, or cellar 3-4years+. The perfect partner to prosciutto and parmigiana.
