Carlo Giacosa Langhe Nebbiolo ‘Maria Grazia’ | 2021

Importer Notes:  Unlike many Langhe Nebbiolo’s this a proper ‘Baby Barbaresco’.  It is grown specifically in the Ovello Cru of Barbaresco, but it only undergoes a brief aging, thus declassifying it from the Barbaresco DOCG.  However, it provides similar depth and nuance as the soil, exposure and altitude of Barbaresco are still present here.

Farming:  Organic

Vineyard:  Ovello Cru (1/2 hectare)

Vine Age:  25-35 years

Tasting Notes:  Fresh raspberry and currants.  Elegant and lively.
