Luca Bosio Nebbiolo d’Alba
We have spent a lot of time seeking out a range of wines from Piemonte that delivers this kind of value for money – we have always believed a good Barolo does not need to cost $200+ if you know where to look, but we are happy to let you be the judge. The Bosio winery is located in the heart of the premium Langhe district and is now run by third generation Luca (though father Valter is never far away – meeting these guys is a little like something out of a 70s mafia movie!). The wines are elegant and expressive – classic Piemonte, and not a fugazi in sight…
If you want to enjoy the classic flavours of Barolo without the hefty price tag, you cannot go past a great Nebbiolo d’Alba, and boy, do we have one for you! We absolutely love this wine – its elegance, its complex perfume of tar and roses, its refined structure and body. On the palate there is a delicate balance of intense dried herbs and flowers, supporting the dark red fruit flavours and velvety tannins. As with all the great wines of this region, it is best enjoyed with food – we recommend a slow cooked lamb or veal dish, or anything with mushrooms.
