Bovio. Not Bovine.
Bovio, Langhe, Nebbiolo, 2004.
There's nothing Bovine about this wine. It doesn't taste like a cow. But it did make me MOOOO!!!!
I blind tasted this as Barbaresco, maybe not quite elegant enough for Barbaresco, but still totally yummy and delish. And you can quote me on that. I like Nebbiolo because it reminds me of really tannic Pinot Noir. High acid, high tannin, you know, all the usual stuff, roses, tar, etc. Goes great with lima beans and jasmine rice!
Peter bought this for $31 at Los Olivos Grocery. So next time you are in the Valley.... check it out!!
