Ghemme 2015 Paride Chiovini
The lime and clay in the glacier moraine contribute to Ghemme’s notorious acidity, which gives this wine freshness and balances the potent tannins of Nebbiolo. It also brings out the finest of Nebbiolo: pleasant, distinctive notes of sour cherry, black berries and raspberry, nutmeg, white pepper, cocoa, dark chocolate and tobacco, with persisting fruit throughout. A balsamic, earthy finish, it remains warm and juicy onto the palate. Its relevant tannic and acidity structure ensures both: long life in the palate and in the bottle.
