Cantine Garrone 'Prünent' Valli Ossolane Nebbiolo Superiore DOC 2018
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. Brooding, austere and full of herbal mountain air, this is ancient vine Prünent calling. It is crystal clear, vertical and pure, with dark cherry depth and cool menthol calm. Bitter herbs and spice punctuate the wine and ride out a very long finish. Definitive alpine fine wine from a producer no Nebbiolo lover should miss.
"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...distinctive." Gary Walsh - The Wine Front
