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.

Mauro Veglio’s Arborina is to die for

Mauro Veglio Barolo Arborina 2011

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know I spend a lot of time with Mauro Veglio and his wife. And you probably also know that I am a huge fan, not just of their wines but of them. And their Barolo Arborina is no exception. 2011 was a good year, especially for my palate. So it’s no surprise I love their Arborina from that year. Barolo’s are heavy, and I struggle with the tannins, and although this wine has tannins, it’s very well balanced!
