Save $16.01 (32%)
Deep ruby red in colour with a slight orange edge. Harmonious well-balanced aroma, a pleasant blend of floral, fruity and soft spicy scents, with a sapid finish of rose and violet. Fresh lively bouquet with harmonious tannins, alcohol and balanced acidity. Soft, elegant and full-bodied with a very long aftertaste. Redolent of freshly macerated red berries, raspberry and redcurrant. It goes well with robust roasts and hard, soft or well-aged cheeses, it might surprise you with fresh fish and raw tuna tartare.
Cogno's 2014 Langhe Nebbiolo Montegrilli is on point. Precise, sculpted and chiseled in style, the 2014 offers plenty of vintage and site character in mid-weight style best enjoyed over the next few years. Wild flowers, mint, white pepper and sweet cherries add nuance on the close. This is a very pretty entry-level Nebbiolo from Cogno.
A supple red, sporting cherry, earth, tobacco and spice flavors, tightening up on the finish, suggesting decantation or short-term aging. Drink now through 2020. 830 cases made.
