Cantine Garrone 'Prünent' Valli Ossolane Nebbiolo Superiore DOC 2016
This product is currently sold out.
This is 100% Prünent (a bio-type of Nebbiolo). Vines are up to 100 years old and found in little pergola trained parcels around Oira, deep in the Italian Alps. Crystal clear, this is vertical wine at its finest. The dark cherries are sweet, the complexity boundless and the balance takes your breath away. Cooling menthol, bitter herbs and spice leap off the flavour wave which is firmly knit together by powerful tannin. Definitive alpine fine wine.
"Sweet dark cherry, blackcurrant, menthol, new leather, spice and flowering basil. Medium-bodied, but dense and packed, amaro and ripe black cherry, firm sticky tannin, so much presence and power in a lithe frame. Spicy fruit pillows and dark chocolate roll out on a long and perfumed finish. Something different here, and mighty impressive it is too." 95+ points, Gary Walsh - The Wine Front
