Malvira Roero Nebbiolo, 2018


Trattoria Stella in Traverse City has been on the Wine Enthusiast's list of the top 100 wine restaurants in the country so I was not surprised to see a wine of this quality available as a wine by the glass. Roero, as I have mentioned before, is just across the river from Barolo and has some well sited Nebbiolo vineyards.

Medium light garnet typical of Nebbiolo. Haunting scents of rose petals, dark cherries and spice. Seems mature and mellow on initial sips, but the tannins are there if you look for them but with good balancing acidity. Black licorice and red berry fruit on the finish. Beautiful Nebbiolo tonight to accompany fettucine arrabbiato, but it is clearly a wine that will get even better with age.
