Alpi Retiche Nebbiolo
Versatile food wine; I’ll be drinking it with salmon, a variety of pastas, and roast chicken.
Balgera “Alpi Retiche” Nebbiolo 2015
Nebbiolo can clearly resemble Pinot Noir, and this entry-level bottling from Balgera is very Pinot-ish. Light to medium red color, inviting aroma of wild strawberries and herbs, including angelica and a hint of mint; medium weight in the mouth, supple tannins, very flavorful and fresh (relatively bright acidity is one of the hallmarks of Nebbiolo from this alpine region, just south of Switzerland). 100% Nebbiolo, aged 3 years in large barrels.
