Maretti "Langhe" Barbera Nebbiolo 2015
Dark brick red in colour with crimson highlights. The nose is already expressive and inviting with a complex array of fresh red fruits, dried herbs, forest undergrowth and aniseed. The palate is medium to full bodied, driven by core of supple raspberry and dark plum flavours courtesy of the Barbera. Nebbiolo adds structure and length alongside fine tannins. Enjoy in its youth with a wide range of rich Italian dishes.
The Wine Front – If you’re in an Italian state of mind then we’re pretty much into ‘fill your boots’ territory here. This is the kind of ‘go to’ wine you’re always going to want to have on hand. It’s all licorice root, dark cherry, earthen/ferrous-like spice and coffee grounds, the acidity refreshing and the tannin authentically firm. It’s not earth-shattering but it’s damn good buying and drinking.
