A & G Fantino Rosso Dei Dardi Monforte d'Alba 2020 (Piedmont, Italy)
Brothers (and Barolo wizards) Alessandro and Gian Natale farm a small 8 hectares right in the heart of Barolo’s Bussia Cru, an area famous for producing incredibly finessed wines that age well. It’s no wonder that they were able to work their magic when it came time to produce this beguiling everyday rosso.
This “young” vine Nebbiolo (if you consider 20+ year old vines young!) is a playful, fresh take on the varietal that doesn’t sacrifice the complexity and charm of its older, more serious counterparts. Classic notes of black fruit and a lightly floral aroma lead in to a fruit-driven palate with just enough tender tannins to give this quaffable wine some structure. Give 30-45 minutes of air for best results.
Food Ideas: Pizza night! Lamb shank osso buco, wild mushroom risotto, steak au poivre, eggplant parmesan
