Trediberri – Langhe Nebbiolo 2016

Trediberri Langhe Nebbiolo 2016

One of my new favorite winemakers in Nicola at Trediberri. You’ll have to look hard to find a more energetic, eager to learn, interesting young winemaker. The winery is located below La Morra in the middle of the vineyards. He is a relatively new winemaker, but his wines are well balanced and fresh. Definitely worth a try if you can get a hold of a bottle (or a glass).

This wine has the characteristics of a typical nebbiolo: fruity, floral, cherries. As it is a nebbiolo, it might need to breathe a little to open up, but it’s a fresh wine, easy to drink.

Barolo by Barolo Mascarello: Wine of the Week

Barolo 2008 Bartolo Mascarello

Of all the Barolo wines, this might be considered one of the best. Wine is all about tastes and is a very personal matter, but Maria Teresa is a legendary wine maker in Piemonte. If you have the chance to taste her wines or even visit her, you should. This wine is well balanced with smooth tannins and powerful notes on the nose and the palate. You can keep this in your cellar for at least another decade, 10 years is still way too young!
