Susuro Wines Pyrenees Nebbiolo 2019
The Pyrenees has always been a happy hunting ground for Nebbiolo with its continental climate and cool nights vital to helping this particular grape shine. This wine, however, is a slightly unusual take on Nebbiolo. Forget the bold tannic reds, this is a pretty and stylish example which still showcases nebbiolo’s charm.
It’s a light cherry red to start, similar to a deeply coloured rosé, a theme continued by its pretty watermelon, potpourri and spicy aromas. The wine is then crisp, light-bodied and perfumed with raspberry and floral flavours supported by silky tannins with a lingering finish. It is an early drinking style well suited to food and lightly chilled would be superb with a smorgasbord of charcuterie and cheese on a balmy Summer afternoon.
