2017 Roberto Sarotto ‘Nativo' Langhe Nebbiolo
Roberto runs this estate with help from his wife, Angela. His great, great grandfather planted vines in the area that were passed down the generations, usually making bulk wine. After Roberto graduated from the winemaking school, he extended the vineyards and Roberto Sarotto wines commenced. This is a serious mini Barolo! Classic pale garnet colour and a complex nose including roses, violets and slightly raisined fruit. The palate has lovely intensity including cherries and berries with a super long length. Do not be put off by the higher level of tannins and acid – just match them with a decent piece of meat or an aged cheese.
