Sitting on the foothills of the Western Alps, the Italian wine region of Piedmont holds the reputation as one of the worlds finest. Reminiscent of Burgundy, this area is comprised of many small family owned vineyards with an obsession to produce the finest quality wines. Known for its world-class Barolo and Barbaresco, the region is also home to other excellent wines made from Nebbiolo. These wines offer great value like the Collina San Ponzio Nebbiolo d’Alba 2019. This everyday Italian red is interesting enough for serious wine drinkers, yet easy enough to share with a crowd over a big plate of spaghetti and meatballs! The Barolo like aromas of freshly cut flowers, raspberry, spice, and cinnamon give this racy, beautifully perfumed Langhe Nebbiolo its undeniable appeal. The 2019 is an especially fine vintage, as it has fabulous balance. It's like ready-to-drink Barolo for $12.99 a bottle!
"Pleasant aromas of lightly spiced red berries and hints of dried coconut follow through to a medium body that’s silky at first, then rather firm by the end, leaving a savory aftertaste. Drink now." James Suckling, 90 points
