2011 Ghemme 'Leblanque', Valle Roncati, Piedmont

Open and very expressive, the nose on this outstanding Nebbiolo draws you in. There's a core of ripe cherry fruit, but also notes of spice and a floral element. The palate is textured, with fine, ripe tannins coating the mouth, and excellent freshness balancing the ripeness of fruit here. With a very long finish, this is a cracking Nebbiolo, that would put most Barolos to shame.

Vigneti Valle Roncati

Founded in 1997 by the charming Corrado Fassa and his wife Cecilia, Valle Roncati is a standout producer of the region. Corrado had a desire to grow grapes, a family tradition that had been halted by his grandfather. And the couple, now joined by their sons, now own nine hectares of vineyards across Alto Piemonte. They have a real love of the region and of its produce - a visit here always includes a delicious array of local meats, patés and cheeses - and this care shines through in their wines.
