2015 Rosso Dei Dardi A. & G. Fantino - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



Nebbiolo certainly deserves its place among the world’s noble grape varieties, given its potential to produce long-lived wines of fascinating complexity and mystery. Yet this pure Nebbiolo shows a different face, in spite of its provenance in the heart of Barolo country in Italy’s Piemonte. While these grapes could be coaxed into producing a Barolo, growers Alessandro and Gian Natale Fantino had other ideas for the fruit of these twenty year-old vines.

Rather than giving the must an extended maceration and aging the wine for years in oak, as they do for their grandiose Baroli, here they seek to draw out only the perfumed essence of Nebbiolo. The short maceration time extracts minimal tannins, while a short élevage in stainless steel preserves all its liveliness and brilliant young fruit. Rosso dei Dardi is fresh, playful, and utterly delightful—a gorgeously aromatic red to be lightly chilled and cracked open anytime to appreciate Nebbiolo’s sheer deliciousness. –Anthony Lynch
