Barbaresco DOCG Nubiola 2009
AVAILABLE IN 750ML BOTTLES
This wine is made in a traditional style using seasoned Slovenian oak casks and small French barriques to retain the purity of the Nebbiolo grape. The nose is fruit driven with plum, blackberry aromas with floral and herb notes. The palate is soft, savoury and velvety showing a perfect balance between fruit flavours and the addictive nebbiolo bite.
The 2009 vintage is another excellent vintage of this wine.
The 'Nubiola' is the ancient local word for 'Nebbiolo' which means grape.

>> “The 2009 Barbaresco Nubiola blossoms on the palate with juicy dark cherries, flowers and spices, all of which come together in a voluptuous style that is highly appealing. Layers of dark, spice-infused fruit swirl around in the glass all the way through to the huge, voluptuous finish. This plush, layered Barbaresco is inviting and offers pure sophistication from the very first taste. Pelissero aged the Nubiola in a blend of cask and barrique. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.”
