Barbaresco DOCG Nubiola 2010
AVAILABLE IN 750ML BOTTLES
The 2010 Barbaresco Nubiola is impeccable. It's like dark red cherries, freshly cut flowers, mint and crushed rocks had taken shape in the glass. The style is focused, tense and energetic. It has sweet floral, tobacco and spice notes develop in the glass adding depth complexity and nuance. The Nubiola often presents a fairly classic array of flavors and textures.
This Nebbiolo is made in the traditional style. The nose is fruit driven with plum, blackberry aromas with floral and herb notes. The palate is savoury and velvety showing a perfect balance between fruit flavours and the nebbiolo tannic bite. Like all Piemonte reds, it is enjoyed with food for maximum pleasure.
The 2010 has a little more volume and depth than normal which serves to round out some of the contours. A blast of fruit and floral aromatics leaves a lasting impression.
This is a well-priced wine that delivers a beautiful and subdued appearance with bright garnet and ruby highlights. The feminine but profound bouquet shows tones of pressed blue flower, cherry, wild berry and dark spice. The wine drinks young at this stage and promises a steady evolution thanks to the natural freshness of the acidity and the astringent youthfulness of the tannin. Its anticipated maturity is on 2015-2025."
