Why is this Wine so Yummy?
Benevelli’s Langhe Nebbiolo is one of those wines that you can happily hook into any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Particularly at less than $30 a bottle. The elements that make it such a wonderful daily drink are the same in the ‘Ravera di Monforte’ just amplified!
Massimo has a great handle on élévage, the French term meaning upbringing, referring to the period of time a wine is maturing before bottling. The result is great expression of the wines personality, layering in of complexity, and, that subtlety that tames some excellent fruit!
His Nebbiolos are perfumed, intriguing, and, elegant, as you move from the Langhe Nebb to this Barolo the depth of fruit builds as does structure to balance it. Just drink the Langhe to protect you Barolo from infanticide! You’ll be seriously rewarded by waiting a few years before devouring it!
Superb introduction to Neb.
