I think you’ll be impressed if you haven’t yet tried this – there is a ring of quality about it that isn’t all too evident in many wines at this price. And if you have tried it before, the 2019 is as good as any vintage I can recall and this is a very familiar bottle chez Larkin.
2019 Nebbiolo Langhe, Renato Corino
£80 per 6 bottle case in bond
This comes from 1.3 hectares of vines in the commune of La Morra and is frankly a gem of a wine. Unlike Barolo, fermentation lasts just one week in order to produce an attractive, youthful Nebbiolo destined for early consumption. That said, it does not lack concentration with rosy aromas to its supple cherry-like fruit, backed by a juicy freshness. This is an appealing Nebbiolo for drinking on release. Drink 2020 to 2023.
