Podere Ruggeri Corsini, Langhe Nebbiolo DOC, 2018, Piemonte, Italy
£28.75 (inc VAT)
Start your engines, Professor Nicola Argamante and his super geeky PHD in Nebbiolo Genetics are about to give you a vinified masterclass on what Langhe Nebbiolo is all about. Nebbiolo is a demanding little varietal that needs more TLC than other varietals, which is why it is content in the foggy hills of the Langhe. Nicola’s Langhe Nebbiolo is like a baby Barolo with training wheels made in Dogliani, and when you taste it, it gives you the same sensation as winning 1st place in Mariokart: winning. Expect to be smattered with cedar, rose petals, cherries, pepper and spine-tingling acidity at the finish line.
Loredana Addari and Nicola Argamante decided they'd enough of their jobs in the city, so they packed it all in, studied winemaking and bought a tiny vineyard in Monforte d'Alba. They upgraded the traditional estate into an eco-friendly haven by adopting lighter bottles, handpicking, solar panels and natural wastewater purification, and by massively reducing the use of chemical treatments and sulphur.
