Poderi Elia, Langhe Nebbiolo D.O.C. “Padrun”
Langhe Nebbiolo D.O.C. “Padrun”

 

Tasting Notes: Federico Stella makes one of the finest Barbarescos in the world, and they have for three generations. But they have never applied their brilliance to a “basic” Nebbiolo -- until now. Finally, we get the intense, vibrant, old-vine fruit of the highest altitude estate in Barbaresco in a fresh, bright wine that makes your lips smack with tangy cherries, warm raspberry, salty chalk, cedar and chocolate. A great value that offers a connoisseur’s Piedmont for everyday enjoyment.
