Paolo Scavino Langhe Nebbiolo, 2012

This wine demonstrates well the similarity between Nebbiolo and Pinot Noir. It has fresh, vibrant fruit with notable depth and concentration.

Medium ruby shading to garnet. Pretty Nebbiolo smells, more like Barbaresco than Barolo. Red raspberry acidity countered by the richness of dark cherries and a touch of black licorice and earth. I am sure the wine will gain some complexity over the next several years, but it is delightful right now.
