Fletcher Nebbiolo D'Alba 2019Regular price $47.00
This is the one that gets gobbled up by the restaurants before it is available to retail trade.
2019 will be the last bottling of Nebbiolo d’Alba. This is because David’s own vineyards (in Barbaresco within the Langhe DOP) are now mature enough to be harvested and have been used for the 2020 vintage and will be Langhe Nebbiolo.
Wow! What a gorgeous wine! Vibrant red fruit on the nose aromas of jubes, raspberries, cranberries, liquorice, spice & smoky roses. Its richly textured with a faint chalkiness (it is Nebbiolo), rolling flavours of rich beetroot, plums and the very slightly chalky tannins go on for days. It will only get better with time, very yummy.
