Josetta Saffirio Langhe D.O.C. Nibbiolo 2019, Piedmont

Nibbiolo from Italy - Piedmont
Review Date : 12-Jan-2022
Bright, ruby-red with a garnet hue, lighter on the rim. The nose is soft and vibrant, sweet fruit of strawberries, cherries aromas interweave floral, spice and subtle note of earth. Full-bodied, aromas of strawberries and cherries accompanied by savoury mealy nuance, unfolding floral and spice details. The palate is salivating, brilliant acidity balanced by the ripeness of fruit and a fine, silky tannin grip; earthy and savoury notes linger to a lasting finish with a hint of spice and floral lifting. This is an approachable Nebbiolo with attractive ripe fruit, acid balance and a silky, smooth tannin grip. Match with truffle shaved pasta pork stew over the next 5+ years. Handpicked, destemmed, pressed to ferment in stainless steel tanks, 10 days post-ferment maceration, after MLF, aged in oak barrels for about 12 months. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Jan 2022 RRP $55
