Principiano Langhe Nebbiolo 2018 (& Barolo 2016)

Nebbiolo

Morten wrote me: “More Nebbiolo, please!”

I couldn’t agree more. So I went on a mission. Here’s who I brought with me.

Principiano’s Nebbiolo wines are always in the elegant corner of the spectrum. And in his Langhe Nebbiolo 2018 this is exemplified with conviction. This young charmer is a force of nature with its vigor and strong positives vibes. Fresh cherries, wild strawberries, a touch of autumn and a yummy licorice finish. Juicy and drinkable. Classy and handsome.

Morten and I both read that 2016 is a fantastic Barolo vintage. But none of us had tried any of them. Usually the really great vintages require a lot of patience so I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Principiano’s 2016 is indeed ready to drink right now. Bright, fragrant and feminin. But – as is always the case with Barolo – with an opinion of her own. A stunning beauty with a big broad smile on her face 🙂
