2020 Langhe Nebbiolo Nebiulin
Pretty, young Nebbiolo with a delicate floral nose and fresh, harmonic palate. Oodles of personality, cherry tones, strawberry and cinnamon.
Alessandro Bovio was a winemaker consultant for many years in Roero, Langhe, before starting his own little estate. He planted Nebbiolo and Barbera just in front of his house, along with a few existing vineyards of Barbera owned by his family. The vines have never seen any chemicals. This Nebbiolo comes from 4 year-old vines on a sandy-chalky soils. "It was supposed to be sold to local restaurants but I, after trying it, decided to buy it all and make it an ongoing project", says importer Giorgio de Maria, "the idea is a lighter, less extracted Langhe Nebbiolo; more summery, pretty but also elegant and with fine structure. Nebiulin is an ancient name for an every day drink Nebbiolo in this part of the world."
