Age worthy neb from Italy's best wine region: Barolo DOCG
Nebbiolo is to Barolo as pinot noir is to Burgundy, and the contents of this bottle explain why...

Why do we love this wine?
We first imported the 2016 vintage of this wine, one that was awarded the Best in Show Barolo from the Decanter World Wine Awards. When we found out we could get our hands on the future vintages, we were ecstatic! While the 2016 Barolo’s were quite approachable after only a few years, the 2018’s are looking to be in it for the long haul. This one’s for ageing, mofo: full of drive and tannin in its youth, this will open up beautifully in a couple of years. James Suckling’s review below further paints the picture of a wine with a long, fruitful life.
Tell me what you really think.
