2015 Michele Chiarlo Il Principe Langhe Nebbiolo

From a hotter vintage than the previous post’s reportedly close to perfect 2016, this is a bit less vibrantly red in colour, richer and more tarry. Perhaps a rounding caramel barrel taste, just a hint. The focus is clean, fat cherry and earth Nebbiolo with firm ripe melting tannin and a merged fresh acid tug. Unarguably Langhe and could pass for basic Barolo or Barbaresco. A direct import under one of Woolie’s cryptic business portmanteaus. Not sure if that’s the right word but it sounds good doesn’t it?
