Bersano 2010 Barolo Nirvasco


Sauvage notes of roses and resin lightened by strawberry and mint. The deeply steeped tannins cut into a concentration of  tobacco and fennel. Managing that wonderful dance of Nebbiolo: intense and powerful, yet elegant and complex.  Plenty of tar and iron in the finish as a savory note unfurls.  The flavors are firm and well-integrated, but this wine would benefit from upwards of a decade in the cellar.

This winery is based in Asti, and is well known for it’s Barbera production. It’s Barolo game is of a newer vintage. They are purchasing fruit from several Barolo producers to make this wine.  The quality of these offerings has been excellent, and offered at very attractive prices.
