Nebbiolo is a rather interesting grape, hailing from Italy’s Piedmont region. Wines produced using Nebbiolo are usually found to be rather tannic, but also quite fruity at the same time. They can, at times, be rather sour, depending on the time of the year the grape was harvested.
However, with the Barbaresco from Gigi Rosso, this is a little different. The tannins are quite soft compared to the fruit tones noticed in the wine. It is also a little sweeter than other wines from the region, but not in a bad way. It adds to the character and enjoyability of this wine. Consumers will be greeted with a complex bouquet and palate. It is an enjoyable wine and one that should not be missed.
This is a great wine that can be enjoyed straight from the bottle. But according to Gigi Rosso, the wine can be further aged in bottle for another 3-5 years to fully take advantage of the complex flavors and aromas that this wine can offer.
Store your unopened bottle in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 15°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
