It takes two to make a thing go right
It takes two to make it outta sight
I want some wine right now
I’m not Rob Base, but I came to drink down
Sometimes Beautiful Wife sings ‘80s pop songs to me, because she’s sweet like that. Tonight I got some silly song stuck in my head and it made me think about how the wine I’m drinking was made. A stretch? Maybe.
How do small vineyards growing Nebbiolo grapes in Barbaresco in the Piedmont region of Italy compete with the guys growing Nebbiolo in Barolo? Join forces in a cooperative. And that’s what happened in 1894 and continues today with nine classic premium sites from Barbaresco: Asili, Rabajà, Pora, Montestefano, Ovello, Pajé, Montefico, Moccagatta and Rio Sordo. It takes nine to make a thing go right.
Produttori del Barbaresco makes an affordable, easy drinking wine out to the cooperative; Nebbiolo Langhe. A young wine made from grapes grown on young vines is ready made for nights when you want to dance your young ass off. This isn’t a throw-away wine, but it also isn’t a pretentious wine that needs some uptight DOCG designation. Go ahead, open this one up and dance the Cabbage Patch.
2008 Langhe Nebbiolo
|Look||Ruby red sipper wearing ruby red slippers.|
|Smell||Fennel spiked jam. Jam on it.|
|Taste||The first steps are raspberry and cherry transitioning into smooth tannic black tea for a pucker-up dip to end the song.|
If you want all the classic moves of a Barbaresco, without the price of the VIP room, grab a Langhe Nebbiolo.
