Latta Landsbrough Young Skin No 1 Non Dos Zero Additions Nebbiolo 2016

The names of these wines at times sort of work counter intuitive to the zero addition, minimal intervention, organic-leaning thing going on, with maximum intervention naming, but I kind of like it. And they’re fluid. Here’s nebbiolo from Glenlofty and Malakoff Vineyards in Pyrenees. Combo. This is a barrel selection but there’s going to be some single releases to follow. Neutral vessels, whole bunch and no additions here.

Murky garnet-bronze colour. Nebb land. Dark cherry, mocha, dried fig and date scents, not sweet though, thoroughly savoury and overlaid with char, earth and undergrowth character to sniff on. Tannins ripple and assert authority, dusty, gummy, but there’s dark fruit sloshing through too, more of the dark cherry-mocha but with espresso and chinotto distinct and a course of dried brown herbs too. Serious feeling, moody, a deep bass-line of thumping nebb, yet there’s lift to finish too. Curiosity and deliciousness!
