Damilano Langhe Nebbiolo Marghe, 2010

The one word that keeps coming into my mind to describe this wine is "deep." It is very deep and serious and lovely. Damilano has excellent vineyards in Barolo, and this Nebbiolo is built like a Barolo, deep and powerful.

Light ruby, clear and bright. Considerable sediment. For the first hour or so, it takes a lot of swirling to get to the aromas centering on dark cherry and black licorice. Deep rather than pretty, lures you in slowly with its power. As I expected, gets better and better with each sip. Ripe Nebbiolo fruit on a sturdy carriage of acidity. Deep, lasting finish. I am so glad I have one more bottle of this wine.
