10 STELLAR PIEMONT REDS AT 90+ POINTS
Perhaps the best value here is Vietti's Nebbiolo Langhe Perbacco 2016. Made from estate grapes in Barolo and a small amount of purchased grapes from both Barolo and Barbaresco, it reveals fine complexity, intensity and balance for a wine at this price.
The rich texture is filled with cherry, raspberry, white pepper and chalky, mineral notes in this firmly structured red. Tightens up as it moves from the attack to the lingering finish. Shows fine intensity and balance. Drink now through 2025. 3,500 cases made, 1,000 cases imported ~ Bruce Sanderson
