If you go below the base Nebbiolo, which we really liked (see here), if you go down, down, down beneath that to the Barbera, which quite frankly we love, so incredibly generous at the dinner table, if you go right down to the screw cap, you will end up at the Rosso.
And here, at the bottom of the barrel, a base model blend, you will have a juicy, fruity, slightly acidic and maybe a tad thin red, that is overflowing in simple joy. Put on Beethoven’s Ninth and dance around the room with a glass. Or just have dinner with it. We couldn’t see the downside, especially in the US where you can score it for an unfrigging-believable $14 USD.
Can you hear my lips smacking?
