Ghemme Il Motto 2009 La Torretta
Beautiful mid ruby robe with orangey notes, this is unmistakably an aged Nebbiolo - powerful, long lasting, complex. The acidic soil makes its body seem younger than its age, perhaps even a little too easy drinking. It reminds us of a good Barolo, with a leaner frame and greater youthfulness. At first the scent is misleading, like in most natural wines, and you may expect it to be slightly imbalanced. Give it a moment to reveal itself in full air! Then, when taking the first sip, a bounty of red berries, cherry and plum emerge, enriched by nutmeg, chocolate, strawberry jam, cocoa, earth. All with great texture - not liquid, not solid… a great red, that we can’t stop enjoying! Remember that it needs to be opened at least a couple of hours prior to consumption.
