The 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo is soft and inviting, with pretty floral and spiced notes that lift out of the glass. This attractive Langhe Nebbiolo is best enjoyed young, while the fruit remains vibrant. 89 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous March 2020
Produced from 20 to 50 year old vines farmed organically on the calcareous inflected sandy soils of La Morra. Fermentation with indigenous yeast and maceration with the skins for a few days in tank followed by aging in used barrique before bottling. Altare's Nebbiolo offers a brilliant ruby color with delicate aromas of rose petal and red fruits. Medium to full bodied and approachable with a supporting tannin and fresh acidity, this discreet dry red is an excellent introduction to this noble variety. Highly versatile and ideal with richer pasta, cured cheeses, and your favorite beef preparation whether raw, grilled, or braised. ~10,000 production.
