2014 Nebbiolo Langhe "Simane" (Reverdito)
Reverdito, Nebbiolo Langhe "Simane", Piemonte, Italy 2014100% Nebbiolo BLACK CHERRY & POMEGRANATE, EARTHY ALMOND, UNWAVERING & ELEGANT The Piemonte's Langhe is an area riddled with revered growing areas and a multitude of specialties, but it's best known for the Nebbiolo-based wines of its famous sub-regions of Barolo and Barbaresco. These long lived and firmly structured wines unsurprisingly command the respect and adoration of wine lovers the world over. Unfortunately, they also typically command prices of 40 dollars and up. This, however, is a graceful and imposing Nebbiolo which clocks in at under $25 and unmistakably resembles, with its aptly androgynous combination of graceful floral mystery and powerful earthy depth, the more expensive reds for which this corner of Italy is best known. Serving Suggestion: Roast pork tenderloin w/ truffle oil & porcini mushrooms. Hummus/garlic/parsley purée-stuffed portobello mushroom caps.
