Alessandro Fantino 'Laboro Disubbidiente per Terra Madre Rosso' 2005
Hailing from Monforte d’Alba, this varietal Nebbiolo shows profound red fruit and floral aromatics, giving way to a dry, structured palate of bright fruit and earthy spice. 10+ years of age have allowed earthier, secondary characteristics to shine through; will continue to age gracefully.

This tartly tannic, headily fragrant, beguilingly complex king of Italian red grapes is brimming with bright fruit and earthy funk -- in versions ranging from explosive (Barolo) to ethereal (Valtellina).
