Arguably the best way to drink wine made from one of the greatest grapes, Nebbiolo, is to find a few fine but affordable bottles from the Langhe region in Italy. Nebbiolo comes in many forms from Barolos and Barberescos to Gattinara. Barolos are notoriously hard to get your hands on for less than $50 but the rare couple I've tried left me wishing I had something approaching real money. But then you find yourself driving around Suffern, NY looking for a hand-crafted toy store, and since you are lost already, pull in (opposite said missing toy store) to a wine shop to kill time and maybe ask directions. I walked out with my recent best value wines including a $10 bottle that is the best $10 wine I've ever had and a couple great bottles for $20, this one included.
With blackberry, chocolate, and walnut on the palette you can already imagine the juicy brilliant acid mouth feel. Even throwing loads of sediment in the first pour, this Nebbiolo managed to remain light and smooth. I simply LOVE this wine. I'm headed back to find a couple more bottles just as soon as I can rationalize a drive across the Hudson river. This wine makes you beg for food to go with it. I'm still salivating. Ok look, I can't say enough about this bottle, just find a bottle, buy it, drink it, love it.
