ALDO CONTERNO IL FAVOT LANGHE NEBBIOLO RED WINE ITALY 2018

In the glass, the ’18 is a deep ruby red with a hint of bricking at the rim. As is typical of Nebbiolo the aromatics are penetrating and perfumed, here driven by red fruit flavors of cherry kirsch, cranberry, and red currant. But there’s so much more: rose petal, blood orange, tar, tobacco, and a hazelnut/vanilla kiss of new oak. The tannins are fine-grained, the texture silky and lush, the finish long, smoky, and sweetly floral.


ALDO CONTERNO IL FAVOT LANGHE NEBBIOLO RED WINE ITALY 2018

Ruby in the center with pale garnet tinges toward the rim. Gorgeous and inviting on the nose, where dried strawberry, red plum, and candied raspberry are accented by fresh roses and anise seed. Freshly picked herbs, pine, and tobacco make their way to the palate with good integration and harmony. It’s drinking very well already, yet is holding plenty in reserve for those patient enough to cellar it for a year or more.
