2016 Pio Cesare Nebbiolo Langhe 750ml
- James Suckling
Serious and ready berry natural products alongside gentle and practically sweet tannins give this wine structure, aroma, and life span. The wine is rich, full-bodied, with a trace of delicate toasting. This appears to be a Barolo with the orange-strip and plum character, just as the firm and chewy tannins. Medium body. Tight and direct. Matured in containers and barrels. Appetizing and delicious currently, however better in 2021. The 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo is a beautiful, super-expressive wine in this range from Pio Cesare. Dried flower petal, mint, star anise, orange strip, and cinnamon add an intriguing sweet-smelling pizazz to a Nebbiolo graced with mid-weight structure and stunning determination that gets done with great grasp.
