Refined ruby color accented by facets of pomegranate seeds and ripened raspberries invites a deeper look into this beautiful Nebbiolo from the Roero DOCG of Piedmont. With a swirl in the glass, the wine comes alive with a bouquet of characteristic rose petals expected from a Nebbiolo, accompanied by fresh herbaceous notes of mint and fennel, with a nose of sweetened raspberry jam and red cherry pie. Given more time in the bottle, the explosive aromas will become more refined, from fresh herbs and ripe berries to baking spices and dried fruit. The nose of sweet berries and floral notes is met with an equally fruit forward palate, with tart acidity and firm tannins, qualities that both aid in this wine’s potential to age gracefully. With a firm structure and a fine mineral finish, this Roero is a fabulous addition to your wine cellar, now and for years to come.
Pair this beautiful example of Piedmont Nebbiolo with classic dishes of the region to fully enjoy the essence of this wine. Enjoy with an antipasti of pungent cheeses, a truffled pasta dish, or alongside braised veal or beef stews.
The Almondo style is defined as: “Great aromas, fragrance and minerality” which is clearly showcased in this 2015 Roero. Since 1980, Giovanni Almondo has been producing some of the best wines of Piedmont, focused on creating consistently flawless wines. The terroir, a combination of sand (70%), limestone (20%), and clay (10%), allows for nuanced and structured Nebbiolos. Once again, Giovanni Almondo has created a wonderful example of what a Roero Nebbiolo can, and should, be. Buy now, save for later!
