2015 La Kiuva Arnad-Montjovet NEBBIOLO BLEND (NEBBIOLO)
5/5/2018 - 91 Points
From memory. Pretty light pinkish ruby, cool fresh nose, smells of red berries still on the bush, ditto the palate, very refreshing and clean but not deep. medium-short finish, tart with little tannins. Overall a step towards deep rose, the lightest nebbiolo I recall drinking, this is a style I like. Enjoyed with faux chicken cassoulet.
I just heard on another forum, that Foradori now also have a cheaper Teroldego wine called Lezer. The person who posted about it, said it was very good indeed, though I get the impression from the clear (uncoloured) glass, that it’s likely to be a wine to drink young. Might be their own version of the Unlitro wine style they make (in partnership) in Tuscany.
Yup, Nathan…I’ve seen that on their menu but have never had it.
Laura is a very creative chef and, across the board, comes up w/ good food.
Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you can order the Ostrich Drumstick from the menu…if you have a big appetite!!
Yup, Steve. Pure Nebbs from the Val d’Aosta are pretty rare & difficult to find, as is pointed out in the article and why they
are often blended w/ other grapes. I, too, love those lighter/delicate/ethereal Nebbs. But we know from Barolo/Barbaresco
that Nebbiolo is supposed to be a big/powerful wine. Or so we’re told.
You should try the G.D.Vjara Clare JC (Jefferson-Corti) Cuvee Langhe Nebbiolo. It’d probably be one you’d really like.
“faux chicken cassoulet.”…ohhh…the horrors of it all!!!
