2019 Nebbiolo d’Alba La Pipina, La Bioca
Tasted at the winery in January 2022 - https://barolista.blogspot.com/2022/01/the-barolo-boys-in-piedmont-visits-to.html - it was fun tasting this wine again. Brought up in concrete vats, as shown on the label, this Nebbiolo sports a fresh, open nose with notes of herbs, dried strawberries, violets and hockey pucks. Very nice.
The taste is cool and seedy with notes of rosehips, red cherries, tobacco and a fine coffee bitterness in the finish. Very mineral laden. 5+ years.
