Nebbiolo is a thick-skinned grape variety and while the colour in the glass is a bright cherry red, it is translucent. However, lurking in these thick skins are tannins and these give the wine its fantastic structure.
The wine is light to medium bodied on the palate with sweet fruits of cherries and blueberries backed up by firm tannins. Combine this with a crunchy acidity giving the wine length and you have a wine screaming out for a protein laden dish to suit.
Fantastic to drink as a young wine so enjoy over the next 2-3 years but it will last a few more than that.
Protein doesn’t always have to be a cut of meat. Grab a timber board, add rich pork sausage, creamy prosciutto, fresh burrata, a slice of pecorino, a few chestnuts and a handful of olives. Buon Appetito.
