Category: Red Wine
Region: Niagara Peninsula
Format: 750 mL
Producer: Alvento Winery
Alcohol: 13.5% Alcohol/Vol.
A lighter style Nebbiolo, but still high in tannin
Positives: This wine features pomegranate, strawberry, cranberry, oregano, arugula and leather.
Interesting Point: The Nebbiolo vines were planted in 2001 with their last vintage 2012. Unfortunately, the polar vortex that hit this region in 2014, and destroyed the vines. Nebbiolo is a rarity for Canada, and even more rare as these vines are no longer here, so value for the money it’s worth the cost.
Ageability: Drink now but double decant and pair it with beef Braciola or drink on its own over the next 10 of years.
My Opinion: Recommended
