Valentine’s Nebbiolo

Making the wife some penne pomodoro, and since it’s a lovely Valentine’s evening, we splurged on some Nebbiolo.

Paitin’s DOCG Nebbiolo is cherry-garnet in the glass, with an understated nose but a pleasant mouthfeel. Tarrish, tobacco flavors up front as you’d expect, not a whole lot of fruit.

Short finish but really, really nice. Try it!
