2016 Bel Colle Nebbiolo d'Alba La Reala, Piedmont (PRE-ARRIVAL ONLY)
Pre-arrival price only, wine lands again December and will be $49.
From the magnificent 2016 vintage, one for long haul but surprisingly open now.
This Nebbiolo d'Alba grows in sandy vineyards called “bricchi” in Roero, left of the river Tanaro. Despite these sandy soils this is perhaps the richest expression of Nebbiolo from the Bel Colle team and certainly a fuller wine than the Langhe Nebbiolo. A wine capable of extended ageing but pretty now with open-weave tannins and bright red fruit.
