Traversa Il Ciabot Langhe Nebbiolo 2010: seriously good Nebbiolo….


I have written a few posts on just how much I love the wines of Traversa from Barbaresco. They are pure expressions of Nebbiolo and they make the wines like they have been made for generations past.

Barbaresco – Traversa vineyards – view from winery.

The just landed 2010 Langhe Nebbiolo has just been given a big tick of approval by Gary Walsh from The Wine Front.

It’s declassified Barbaresco, which means that the 2010 Barbarescos from this producer should be pretty bloody good..  Importer: Mondo Imports.

Leather, cherry, Amaretto, red fruit, wood smoke – deep. It’s medium bodied, spicy and chewy and fresh all at once–ample musculature on show–though not without finesse. Dense with strong tannin impact and a long finish. Unevolved as young wine – it needs time. Amazing value. Drink : 2015 – 2025+ 93 points Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
