Connor’s Pick: Ioppa Colline Novaresi Nebbiolo 2013

Admittedly, I’m always a sucker for Piedmont and, more specifically, for the Nebbiolo grape. Sharp tannins, high acidity, rose petals on the nose and spicy red fruit on the palate are all quintessential to the grape and the region, but thankfully this wine delivers in all respects! The producer’s vineyards are slightly higher in elevation than those in the more famous towns of Barolo or Barbaresco, which ultimately translates to a slightly brighter and more mineral-driven wine, but you won’t hear me complaining about that! Don’t let the DOC fool you, this is the same Nebbiolo grape that you may know from the Langhe. While I love the the tannins of young Nebbiolo with or without food, this is certainly a food wine so order yourself a Neopolitan pizza or make yourself a little bowl of gnocchi after work this week and enjoy!
