What a memorable night! Not only due to the wine, but also due to the people I shared this great Nebbiolo with. Absolutely the downside of living on the other side of the Atlantic ocean is missing these special girls. You girls are the best!!!
A big thank you to @greenflashwijn for introducing me to this Nebbiolo! Your passion for Piemonte made me that much more eager to open this bottle and it totally lived up to your vivid introduction!!
Ugo Lequio is a small boutique producer located in Piemonte who strives for a balance between innovation and tradition. His Langhe Nebbiolo is made entirely out of Nebbiolo from a vineyard located in Treiso at 400 meters altitude. It ferments in stainless steel after which it will age in used French oak for 5 to 6 months….
On the nose aromas of red cherries, red fruits, dried herbs, anise, and earthy notes. The fine Nebbiolo character where the nose keeps surprising you with more after each sniff. On the palate refined while still having persistency, flavors of sour red cherries, anise on the background, a small pleasant bitterness, and high in acidity and tannins. Awesome value!
