Benevelli Piero Langhe Nebbiolo 2016

Nebbiolo producers all over the world would probably prefer that you didn’t see this wine. If you’re of a Nebbiolo kind of mind, this is about as exquisite as value gets.

Given that it retails for $30 this is almost ridiculously good. Every itch is scratched, every promise fulfilled. It’s tense, perfumed, earthen, licorice-like, scribbled with fine-point tannin and persistent enough to made each swig feel like a journey. It’s a wine of finer details, no broad strokes allowed, no generalisations. It’s devilishly good.
