- Damilano Nebbiolo Langhe Marghe 2011 Product #27970 (In Stock)
The past three vintages of this “baby Barolo” have impressed, and the 2011 edition keeps that string going. Sixteen months in small barrel (mostly used) soften Nebbiolo’s hard edges without diminishing the pure fruit and secondary flavors delivered by 30-50 year-old vines. If you don’t mind a bit of grip, you can drink this on its own right now, but it will really sing with any dish loaded with earthy mushroom, duck, or roast pork dishes. Value here is pretty staggering.
"Damilano's 2011 Langhe Nebbiolo Marghe blossoms in the glass with a generous, inviting melange of dark red and black fruits, cloves and new leather. The precocious vintage has filled out the Marghe nicely, adding considerable volume, texture and depth. There is a lot to like in this serious, expressive Nebbiolo." Antonio Galloni 88 points
"The 2011 Langhe Nebbiolo Marghe is a terrific wine that shows the bright intensity of the Nebbiolo grape framed by fresh notes of cherry fruit, rosebud, polished stone and licorice. The wine goes down easily and refreshes the palate thanks to its balanced acidity. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016."Wine Advocate 88 points
