2018 Langhe Nebbiolo La Chiusa, Chionetti
This is not your flirty kind of Langhe Nebbiolo. Instead it is deep, restrained and tight with fine notes of red currants, dried strawberries, earth, rosehips and dry licorice. Very, very good.
The taste is young and seedy with notes of hard cherry candy, rosehips, asphalt and dry tobacco. Strict. Not a charmer at this stage but shows a fine potential. Has closed up since last year.
