2016 Cascina Bruciata Nebbiolo Usignolo
2016 Cascina Bruciata Nebbiolo Usignolo Red wine from Italy.
This Nebbiolo offers a splendid example of full and balanced wine: on the nose it has notes of pink, strawberry and violet; at the same time, it gives elegance and fullness to the taste, with tannins present but gently harmonized. It goes well with seconds or aged cheeses, with the typical Piedmontese bagna caoda or with grilled red meats and game.
This shows more herbs and cedar as well as lavender, elderberries and thyme but also slate and fresh blue fruit. The palate’s tightly wound but full and shows grainy tannins, finishing long. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.
