Cascina delle Rose Langhe Nebbiolo 2020

$58.00

Just about everyone claims their Langhe Nebbiolo is a Barolo or Barbaresco in everything but name. What rubbish! Small differences in wine, whether it be a few metres, different aspect, soils and vine age could add up to some vast differences in the glass. Sourced from the monopole cru Tre Stelle, but the aspect of the vines is west and north-west as opposed to south to south-west for the Barbaresco. Fermented and aged in steel and concrete, the Langhe Nebbiolo is however just about as good as I’ve seen, from any vineyard, anywhere in Piedmont.

Intense and vivid aromas of lavender wood, sweet tobacco, roses, bitumen, cherry, raspberry and star anise. Beautifully expansive palate, a peacock’s tail of flavours and texture. Crunchy red fruits, ripe but not sweet, earthy notes, chalky minerality and long velvety tannins. There is a marked coolness and high toned composure that surely is a result of the vine’s aspect. Exquisite and precise, indeed as all the wines are, this is long, balanced and superbly integrated. Approachable now, but I think a 5 year wait could easily be justified. Absolutely terrific.
