Ferdinando Principiano Le Coste Nebbiolo Langhe DOC, Piedmont 2012 $41

An entry-level nebbiolo from Barolo country, with deep-ish colour and briary, dried-herb and raspberry aromas. It’s a medium-weight wine on the palate, with clean, sweetly ripe fruit and a touch of leanness, the tannins tight and in fine balance. The abiding taste is of sweet, ripe berry fruit. Now to 2024. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: Reggiano cheese
