Sobrero Langhe Nebbiolo 2018
Established in the 1940s by Francesco Sobrero, this family-run winery has been carefully managed by third generation Flavio Sobrero since 2000. The family manages 16 hectares, three quarters of which are located in the heart of Langhe’s Castiglione Falletto region. Producing some of the region’s top-tier Langhe Nebbiolo, Sobrero is also lucky enough to own vines within six magnificent Crus: Villero, Pernanno, Ornato, Piantà, Valentino and Parussi. The conversion to organic viticulture in 2020 marks a new chapter in their family history.
This Nebbiolo would give many a Barolo a run for its money. Grapes are hand-picked and de-stemmed then fermented in stainless steel tanks for around 25 days.
It is a carefully crafted expression of the fickle Nebbiolo grape that offers the generosity of fruit you find in modern examples while paying tribute to classic, more rustic styles. Lively varietal characteristics on the nose with redcurrants and raspberries, enriched with subtler notes of clove, nutmeg and black pepper plus tar and liquorice.
