Fletcher Langhe Nebbiolo d'Alba 2020
Piemonte, Italy, 75cl
Fletcher Langhe Nebbiolo d'Alba is made from 100% Nebbiolo and is derived from two vineyards, with the majority being in Montà (Roero) and the second in Scaparoni (Alba). Both have different soils, where the Scaparoni has a higher percentage of sand and silt than clay and tends to produce a more elegant wine. The Monta vineyard has a higher percentage of clay and produces a more structured wine. Together they’re a match made in heaven producing a wine of fantastic energy and verve. Bright ruby red in colour with an intoxicating bouquet of sour red cherry, pepper, herbs and leather. The palate is brisk and oh so elegant marrying crunchy red fruits with pepper, tobacco, leather, herbs and subtle nuances of mint and toast. Fletcher Nebbiolo d'Alba is a seriously classy bottle of wine and a hidden gem!
"Sometimes it takes an outsider to truly appreciate the gifts and potential of a region. I first met Dave Fletcher, a native of Australia, at Ceretto, where he is the winemaker. A few years ago Fletcher started making wines under his own label at a tiny cellar that was once a train station in the flats of Barbaresco, below Marchesi di Grèsy. The first wines are certainly impressive. In a very short time, by Italian standards, Fletcher has managed to forge some pretty strong relationships that give him access to top-tier fruit. More importantly, Fletcher clearly understands the potential of Piedmont, something not all of the locals do, and he has the ambition, commitment and sheer drive to go after his dreams. That’s pretty impressive stuff in my book." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
