Aged in large oak casks for 12 months, the 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo offers balance and varietal purity............ The fruit is bright and cheerful with cherry confit and wild strawberry. Those lingering aromas are fragrant and bright.” - Monica Larner - Wine Advocate

This is from younger vines in Serralunga (barolo). Different from other recently reviewed nebbs that were briefly 'aged' in stainless steel, this was matured in big oak for 18 months before bottling and is way more tertiary in its colour, aromas and flavours. As a result it presents more like a scaled-back barolo, with characters of earth, mineral and tar, with ever-present fragrant notes reinforcing the elegance. The resolved level of the fruit and tannins make this just as gluggable as its more primary contemporaries........
