This is a pure and unmasked expression of Nebbiolo that gives you an idea of the quality of the higher-denomination wines (like Barolo) we can look forward to when the 2016 vintage is released. Barolo is released four years after the harvest, but Langhe Nebbiolo is a much more flexible category that can hit the market as soon as the producer feels the wine is ready. There are fewer strings attached. The 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo Prinsiòt is endowed with generous primary fruit, but those berry and cherry aromas are released with elegant intensity. Ten months in large oak casks has contributed to the structure and the depth you get here. Some 10,000 bottles were made. Drink: 2018-2024 (Sep18)

The Prinsiòt by Fratelli Alexandria is a full-bodied and intense Nebbiolo is left to age for 10 months in large barrels. It presents a rich bouquet and varied, ranging from notes of wilted flowers and cherries in syrup, until memories of coffee and sweet spices. The taste is warm and dry, with an elegant, lingering finish.
