Vietti Perbacco Langhe DOC, Piedmont 2010 $50

This a junior Barolo for a fraction of a Barolo’s price. A terrific nebbiolo smelling of smoky red fruits and violets, and in the mouth, very elegant and a little lean perhaps, but building flavour as you sip. Impressive length and fine structure, and the fruit does all the talking. Now to 12 years. 14 per cent alcohol. 94/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: pasta with game ragu

Stockist: North Sydney Cellars
