Terre da Vino 2009 “La Casa in Collina” Barbaresco

Posted by Keith Wallace

Lange wine review

I am always looking for good values for Nebbiolo. The high-quality $20 bottle is a rare and wonderful thing.  Typically that takes me to the larger Langhe region, plus Gattinara and Roero. The well-known regions of Barolo and Barbaresco are rarely under $3o, and when they dip below that price point, they are seldom worth drinking.

This is the exception that proves the rule. Linear tannins build out a complex structure of bitter herbs and tar. The plushness of sweet cherry and black fruit comes to open up quickly. Flavors and scents of toast and licorice are flowed by a salinity that finishes with burnt earth and spices.
