Medium bodied, with nice spice notes of white pepper, anise and violet.
Perfect with sausages, ham and salami, pizzas and pasta with simple sauces, spicy food.
"Readers who want to get an early idea of the 2006 vintage in Piedmont will want to check out Produttori del Barbaresco's terrific 2006 Nebbiolo delle Langhe. The wine shows the super-ripe qualities of the vintage in its sweet dark fruit, licorice, tar and spices. To be honest, I haven't always been a fan of this bottling as too often it can come across as green and under-ripe, but none of those qualities are present in this 2006, which bodes well for the estate's top wines. In the meantime, this is a sexy, perfumed Nebbiolo to enjoy over the next few years. As is the case with the more important wines here, the Nebbiolo was aged in cask, six months in this case. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011."
