2017 Langhe Nebbiolo Bricco Ravera, Pecchenino
In September last year I visited Attilio at the estate - Barolista: A Couple Of Days In Piedmont - A Day In Dogliani - and tasted the 2019 Bricoo Ravera.
The 2017 offers up a deep, autumn filled nose with notes of dried cherries, pipe tobacco, asphalt, bonfire and Christmas spices. Very, very good.
The taste is tight and seedy with lots of licorice and herbs infused cherry fruit, Langhe earth, tobacco and sweet tannins. 4+ years.
