2018 Langhe Nebbiolo Spetacôl, Renato Fennochio
When I put my nose in the glass I am transported to the beautiful hills of Piedmont. It smells of the earth and wind when you walk between the vines in the autumn. Notes of iron, red currants, paint, lavender and freshly cut mushrooms. High and fine. Very floral. Lots of tension. Lovely.
The taste is luscious and handsome with notes of lingonberries, mushrooms, iron and violets. Precise. Silky tannins. Very fine. Where did the bottle go? Have to open another one...
The best Langhe Nebbiolo I have tasted in a while. Even better in 3-5 years.
