A “classic” selection of Barbaresco D.O.C.G., grown in some parcels of the Rabajà and Trifolera vineyards. The nose has rose and red cherry, leather and an earthiness. The palate is rich with crisp acidity and great minerality. Flavours of red cherry, strawberry raspberry, dried rose petals, crushed herbs with a firm tannic finish. One to leave in a decanter to relax for a couple of hours if you're enjoying now. Or cellar for another 5-10 years.
Try this with game birds.
Giuseppe Cortese has been making wines in Piedmonte since 1971, his sons and daughters now help in the winery and vineyards and they even have a small B&B on site for visitors. Their flagship Barbaresco is a serious beast and they have a number of different wines from around the region including Dolcetto D'Alba and here the Langhe Nebbiolo.
