2007 Produttori del Barbaresco Nebbiolo delle Langhe

October 14, 2009|S. Irene Virbila

A classic expression of Nebbiolo from one of the best wine cooperatives in the world, Barbaresco's baby bro carries a taste of black cherries and earth from the Langhe region around Alba. Elegant and chiseled, it's a bit softer than a Barbaresco, just delicious and ready for drinking now. A steal at this price.

Open a bottle for a bowl of pasta in meat sauce, grilled lamb or pork chops or a braised beef or short-rib dish.
