Cantine Garrone 'Prünent' Valli Ossolane Nebbiolo Superiore DOC 2017
This product is currently sold out.
This is 100% Prünent (an ancient bio-type of Nebbiolo in Valli Ossolane) aged for a year in a single large Slavonian oak barrel and 6 months in bottle. Vines are up to 100 years old, sometimes pre-phylloxera and found in little pergola trained parcels around Oira, in Piedmont's north most valley. Crystal clear, vertical and pure. The dark cherries are sweet and the complexity boundless with a balance that takes your breath away. Cool menthol, bitter herbs and spice leap off the flavour wave which is knit together by cool tannin. Definitive alpine fine wine.
"Strawberry, cherry, alpine herbs, light, fleet of foot, with a sappy and blood orange flavour profile. Medium-bodied, fine dusty tannin, spiced almond biscuits, quite nervy on a finish of fine length. Not as mineral and deep as the mighty 2016, but still very good. And distinctive."
