Offers up generous fruit along with menthol, spices and hard candy, showing notable intensity while retaining an essentially mid-weight style. Round, suave tannins add to the long and refined finish.
Pairs with hearty stew, wild game, roasted red meats and sharp, aged cheeses.
"Moderately deep medium red. Lovely earthy perfume of cherry, leather, smoke, rose petal and minerals, with an exotic whiff of peach. At once sweet and bright, with vibrant acidity giving shape and precision to the dense earth, saline and floral flavors. Finishes with firm tannins, lovely lift and verve, and noteworthy length. Perbacco means "wow" or "surprise" in the local dialect. This 100%-nebbiolo bottling includes fruit from numerous Barolo crus; in fact, much of this juice used to go into Vietti's entry-level Barolo Castiglione. "
