Hailing from one of the lesser known (at least in Ontario) piedmont regions is an absolute stunning bottle of wine. At 30$ a bottle its an excellent value and would surely pass as a mature barolo or barbaresco blind. Pours a light red color with some garnet on the edge, exhibiting some definite maturity on the rim. Floral with notes of earth, cherry, mushrooms, and a touch of oak. The wine is light-to medium bodied and the tannins and acidity have mellowed enough to make it beautifully balanced. An excellent value!
This wine is made from the same grape (Nebbiolo) as all Barolo's and Barbaresco's. After a hard days work, this is like rewarding yourself with a big spoonful of Nutella. It's smooth, mouth filling, slightly sweet and nutty, and the taste lingers on. Pair this with 2 Piedmontese classics: Rabbit stew and Ferrero Rocher.
