5-28-12 Word On Wine Review 2 From Piemonte!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

This week Mary and I take a virtual (sadly) journey to Italy and visit beautiful Alba!  We review two wines which use the characteristic Nebbiolo grape!

1)2010 Nebbiolo d’ Alba cuvee San Rocco  from DeForville.  $26.  Considering high end wines from Alba will set you back considerably more I thought this was a very decent buy.  Summer is coming and this is a good wine for grilling and other solid Summer food pursuits.

2)2008 Cantina Del Pino Barbaresco.  $42.  Granted a bit steep in the price department but if you want decent Nebbiolo you gotta pay the price!  A little too manly for me but Madame Zajac loved it…You probably will too!  Check out the show by clicking below!
