Vietti Perbacco Nebbiolo 2018
A wine with a diehard fan club, the Vietti 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco drinks like a young Barolo but costs a fraction of the price. I really need to say little more because that accurately sums up the vast appeal of this classic and versatile Nebbiolo. The bouquet is expressive and fresh with wild berries, blue flowers, spice and tobacco. Besides a bit more color concentration that you might notice in the wine's appearance, Perbacco magically shows no sign of the hot vintage.
The 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco is silky, perfumed and pretty. Sweet floral notes, mint, chalk and sweet red berry fruit are all laced together in this very pretty, inviting wine. Pliant and racy, the Perbacco is a terrific introduction to the Vietti wines.
