Belcolle Langhe Nebbiolo 2018

18.99

Description

The noble grape behind Piemontese greats Barolo and Barbaresco, this Langhe Nebbiolo is made to be enjoyed young. There’s no oak here, the grapes are simply fermented in stainless steel for 10 days ensuring fruit is accentuated over tannins.

Brillant ruby red in colour, morello cherry, raspberry and violet leap from the glass initially, with trademark earthy, woody characters in the background. It is dry on the palate but quite opulent, succulent red fruit balanced by hints of leather and forest floor, all brought together by savoury tannins and a crisp, cleansing acidity.

Great with barbecued meats, tomato-based pasta dishes and hard cheeeses.

Founded in 1976 by brothers Franco and Carlo Pontiglione and Giuseppe Priola, the Belcolle winery is based in Verduno, one of the villages of Barolo. Nebbiolo is the star here — the noble grape of Barolo and Barbaresco — with prized sites including the Monvigliero and Borgo Castagni vineyards forming part of 18 hectares of vineyards that surround the winery. Barbera and Dolcetto are also grown here, producing elegant and characterful reds, with Favorita and Chardonnay making up the minority white plantings.
