Babo Langhe Nebbiolo DOC Piemonte Italy 2021


Fruit from mostly south-west facing sites in Castiglione Falletto. Handpicked, destemmed, 6-8 day maceration at 26 degrees with twice daily pumpovers before ageing for six months in concrete tanks. Deep set aromas of dark cherry, plum, dried cranberry and gentle cinnamon spice straight off, followed by tar and ripe red florals. Some nice complexity, prettiness, and depth of aroma at this price point. The palate has nice fruit weight, intensity and prettiness, too – red rose, morello cherry, red plum and cranberry are wrapped up in very assertive powdery tannins and red floral acidity. Nice length, too. This is a winner at the price point, with good complexity, varietal character, and firm structure.
