Drinking Tonight: Rocca dell’Olmo Barbaresco

A 2009 Nebbiolo, $12.  Had this at Mom’s the other night with a big lasagna.

Photo0187Color: russet-red, not quite bricky-colored yet.

Aroma: cherry and smoke.

Taste: tart and bright – this needs some air.  After 10 minutes in the glass, lots of smoke and dried cherry, with white pepper and a bit of truffle.  Very nice.

Excellent deal for $12 for this part of Italy. Recommended.
