It is time to fall in love with the majesty of Nebbiolo - the only red grape that can illicit the same fanaticism as Pinot Noir. It has the same haunting, ethereal perfume, layered complexity and beguiling flavours, but it also packs a tannic, structural punch that allows it match with more robust foods and age for decades.
We have put together 6 Nebbiolo from the Langhe - ground Zero for affordable and drink-now Nebb. Lots of producers will declassify their Barolo and Barbaresco fruit to the Langhe to make top class Nebbiolo. We start of with CANTINA TIBALDI from Roero, an area with sandy soils and elegant Nebby. (Not actually in the Langhe!). GIACOMO FENOCCHIO LANGHE NEBBIOLO is an old & traditional producer based in Monforte d'Alba, showcases the 2018 vintage magnificently. GABRIELE SCAGLIONE LANGHE NEBBIOLO is 2016 and is in a gorgeous drinking window, we love the low intervention wines of Gab. Scag. G.D. VAJRA LANGHE NEBBIOLO is from the wunderkind of Nebbiolo, Aldo Vajra. He specialises in blending the traditional Barolo techniques of the last generation with modern methods - this is pliant and delicious '18. PRODUTORRI DEL BARBARESCO LANGHE NEBBIOLO is a Baby Barbaresco at it's finest, punching well above it's weight as a straight Langhe from '18. PDB are one of Barbaresco's celebrated producers. MASSOLINO are one of our favourite Nebb producers and their 2017 is very highly rated. STSWine
