Morra Gabriele Langhe Nebbiolo 2020Brand - Morra Gabriele
Fruit: 〚red & black〛
A super traditional and complex Langhe Nebbiolo may be from the best vintage of the 2000s. Floral notes (both dried roses and violets) with dried star anise, tart red berry pie, and more savory notes of caramel and sandalwood. The gorgeous mineral and fruit-driven finish dances with the grippy tannins for a very long time. This wine can be uncorked now or in 3-4 years.
In 2013, Gabriele took over the vineyard from his grandfather who had run the family winery (then Pautasso Vini) since the late 1800's. Gabriele's partner in the winery, Stefano Campaniello, has a long career of restaurant management and somming in the European market, giving the pair a traditional, but restaurant/food focused approach. They utilize green manure from the surrounding crops (legumes, wheat and mustard greens) to replenish the nutrients of the soil.
