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.
* 90 bottles for Australia this vintage!
"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." Gary Walsh - The Wine Front
