Cascina Morassino Langhe Nebbiolo 2008 DOC
Irrecoverably dark, total eclipse
Without all hope of day.'
John Milton - Samson Agonistes
Not quite the end of the world stuff, but dark nonetheless. The Cascina Morassino Langhe Nebbiolo 2008 DOC appears almost black in the glass with the hue seemingly black also. The nose is all true Nebbiolo with tar steaming off the surface. The palate, like the nose, is again all Nebbiolo with lip smacking tannins and acid all holding tart red fruit in check. No need to wait for the apocalypse to enjoy this.
