Langhe Nebbiolo Cascina Sciulun, Franco Conterno 2018
Such value to be found in a Langhe Nebbiolo, and Franco Conterno’s is no exception. This fine wine comes from the areas of Monforte d’Alba, Novello and Madonna di Como, with their steep terrain, malleable and rich in clay and sand. Barrel-aged for 8 to 12 months, which is somewhat unusual for Nebbilo but does add a layer of complexity to this wine. Purple ??red colour; with pleasant notes of raspberry, sour cherry and just an edge of leather. Tannins are well balanced by typical Nebbiolo freshness.
