Tintero 2018 NebbioloIn Fine Spirits
Nebbiolo vines planted near the town of Alba, which is the center of Barolo production and the heart of Piedmont’s famed white truffle hunting. The Tintero family uses large, previously used oak casks that impart only subtle woody notes. Light ruby in color with classic black cherry and floral notes with hints of earthiness. In the glass, flavors of ripe red fruit with medium concentration melds with ample freshness and firm, but fine tannins. Pair with red meat, especially BBQ ribs.
