DeForville Nebbiolo d'Alba 2017

Article number: 13103
Availability: On backorder

The Nebbiolo vines for the DeForville Nebbiolo d’Alba are located on a hillside between Barbaresco and Barolo. DeForville is a historic Barbaresco estate and their Nebbiolo d’Alba with its old vines and extended maceration time, exhibits darker fruit and firmer tannins than the  basic Langhe Nebbiolo. The grapes for this cuvée are aged for a short time in large barrels (botti) to soften the tannins, producing a soft relatively easy drinking wine while retaining some of the sanguine meatiness of Nebbiolo. Medium plus bodied, with uplifted floral and red berry fruit tones, earthy, dried herbs and a balanced structure with marked acidity and elegant tension.
