UK-exclusive, legendary 100% Nebbiolo by Malvirà. 3 “bicchieri”, Gambero Rosso
This fabulous wine is made from 100% Nebbiolo, grown facing south-east in Roero on the banks of the Tanaro river. The grapes were hand-harvested in October, and fermented in stainless steel. The wine was then matured for 24 months in oak barrels, and for 12 months in bottle. Now the 2012 vintage can be enjoyed in full, as the austere and powerful tannins of Nebbiolo have softened and the flavours have evolved. The label features the esoteric crest of Malvirà, which sends a profound message: an angel and a demon spinning the wheel of fortune.
Malvirà is the most influential producer in Roero, and possibly the most innovative as well. Their winery is organic certified and carbon neutral, constructed deep underground with geothermal heating and cooling systems.
Tasting notes: Deep, ruby colour. Pronounced, enveloping aromas of dried rose, tobacco, spices, mint, and chocolate. On the palate, it is complex and dry, with a full body and powerful yet soft tannins. Fresh acidity complements the rich, deep flavours, which have a long finish.
Awards: Gambero Rosso: 3 bicchieri (2008 vintage) | James Suckling: 92/100
