“VELUT LUNA” Nebbiolo Coste della Sesia DOC, Paride Iaretti (2016) - Piemonte
Grape : Nebbiolo.
Some proper old-school Nebbiolo from Alto-Piemonte, home to some of the highest altitude vines of the region. Pretty floral aromas of rose alongside those darker, tarry notes. The wine has a lovely, iron-y mineral core that is derived from the volcanic soils over which the vines are planted. A pure nebbiolo of great balance, with a dragging drink.
Food pairing : reat as a full-meal wine, in combination with first courses and a second of meat, to try with spaghetti with meatballs.
