Product Number: 12-85806
|APPELLATION / REGION||Italy, Piedmont, Langhe|
|Grape||95% Nebbiolo ; 5% Barbera|
|Tasting Note||Wine Advocate (eRobert Parker by Antonio Galloni) 94/100 - Vintage 2006|
The 2006 Langhe Sori Tildin opens with a gorgeous, nuanced bouquet that leads to an equally expressive core of ripe, red fruits. This medium-bodied Sori Tildin is the most focussed and energetic of these wines. It offers exceptional length and a refined, polished close. As is often the case, the Sori Tildin is also the most delicate and feminine of the single-vineyard wines. This is a very strong effort even if the explosiveness of the finest vintages is missing. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.
Wine Spectator 92/100 - Vintage 2006 - Tasted: 30-Sep-2009
Displays ripe plum and berry aromas, with hints of fresh flowers, like rose. Full-bodied, with beautiful, clean fruit and a mineral, berry and cherry aftertaste. Balanced and very pretty. Almost drinkable now. Best after 2010.
