Maretti Langhe Rosso (Barbera/Nebbiolo) 2012

Style: Medium bodied red

Country: Italy

Region: Piedmont

 

Tasting note: Vibrancy all round, colour, nose and palate. Highly aromatic with white pepper, blueberry and smoky hints. The Barbera brings lifted fruit characters to the palate, blackberry, blueberry and a touch of pepper while the Nebbiolo adds a savoury, herbal edge. Grainy/chalky tannins.

 

Final Say: A fantastic cheapie packed with Piedmont charm. $17 a bottle

 

Score: 16.5 out of 20
