Giamello-Langhe-Nebbiolo-Villa-Gentiana-2016

Giamello, Langhe Nebbiolo ''Villa Gentiana'', 2016

“This Nebbiolo comes from the same vineyard as the Vicenziana and also qualifies for the Barbaresco D.O.C., but Silvio declassifies it to keep the two wines distinct. He divides the two based purely on tastings, but the Langhe Nebbiolo generally comes from the lower part of the slope, which is slightly cooler and was planted more recently.

Brickish in color, Silvio’s lovely version emphasizes the floral components of the grape, with the tar, smoke, and earth lingering in the background"
