14%. Nebbiolo. Cork.

A trio of home cooked pizzas (potato, margherita and Tuscan kale with pancetta. The last being the crowd favourite.) called for a drought breaker from the cellar. I’ve forgot where I bought this, which seems reflective of the reduced priority wine has had for the last six months. A delicious if predictable example of Barbaresco. Large but well shaped, the tannins making it slim. . . almost. Medium in colour, v/a, wilted leaves, leather, something familiar and earthy. Throat grasping tannins, meaty, firm, and savoury – not unlike a sweet ham.
