Pizzini Estate Nebbiolo 2014
Pizzini’s range of Nebbiolo has exploded in recent years, and headed by quality varietal wines like this. It’s good. It’s real and, importantly, varietal.
Close your eyes and you can imagine this is a Piedmont red. This is tangy, authentic Nebbiolo with ferrous blood and bone savouriness saved by some dry cherry fruit. It’s perhaps too savoury, the tannins drying and firm. But it’s what you want in Nebbiolo, even if it’s not an approachable wine.
Best drinking: I’d come back in five years as a start. 17.5/20, 91/100+.13.8%, $55. Would I buy it? Worth a glass or two as a start.
