A great review for Piero Benevelli Langhe Nebbiolo 2010…

As I have written previously, our family and the Benevelli’s from Monforte share a close bond. It was actually my father who pushed me to try the wines of Piero Benevelli and I am glad I did.

Massimo knows how to craft magical Nebbiolo and Barbera from his special plot of land in Monforte and he does it year in year out. Whilst his Monforte Barolo is the best wine he makes, he also crafts some pretty amazing Barbera and his Langhe Nebbiolo is a great reference point on what Langhe Nebbiolo should be.

From the first bottle of Benevelli we imported into Australia, Gary Walsh from The Wine Front was probably one of the first journalists to recognize and write about about the amazing quality of Piero Benevelli . This is Gary thoughts on the 2010 Langhe Nebbiolo:

Welcome to the world of affordable Italian Nebbiolo. I wore lemon pastel pants with a cobalt blue shirt to taste this. Importer: Mondo Imports

Nutty almond-like barrel characters, strawberry, cherry and spice. It’s medium weight, beautifully balanced and even, with lightly chewy chalky tannin and a surprisingly long finish. Charming. Lively. Delicious. In short, yum. Drink : 2012 – 2018 92 POINTS Gary Walsh, the Wine Front
