Wine AdvocateLuca Currado likes to remind me that this wine could qualify as a full-fledged Barolo. Barrels not used in the final Barolo Castiglione blend are used to make the 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco. In fact, its very name "Perbacco" translates into a somewhat corny "golly gosh" because that was the reaction Luca's mom had when she first tasted the wine and was told it was not a Barolo. "Perbacco, it tastes like Barolo," was her comment-and a legend was born. The Vietti family, along with Bartolo Mascarello and Dott G Cappellano back in the day, had battled for some variation of a Rosso di Barolo in the appellation laws. That never happened, but Langhe Nebbiolo is a concept that follows that same idea: you get great Nebbiolo quality at a fraction of the price. Today, Langhe Nebbiolo is one of the fastest-growing categories in the entire wine region. This beautiful vintage, with its balanced fruit and freshness, is a perfect example.

Wine SpectatorThe rich texture is filled with cherry, raspberry, white pepper and chalky, mineral notes in this firmly structured red. Tightens up as it moves from the attack to the lingering finish. Shows fine intensity and balance. Drink now through 2025. 3,500 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
