Rocche dei Manzoni Bricco Manzoni Langhe Rosso 2010


Sat in the glass for 2 hours before reviewing.
Blend of 80% Nebbiolo and 20% Barbera, first time trying a wine from Langhe(Piedmont), and a blend of this sort.


Colour: Medium purple core, with some sign of ageing.

Nose: Clean nose, high intensity. Liquorice, sweet cherries, red currants, sweet bread, touch of mineral notes.
Rather complex nose that takes advantage of at least 1-2 hours of decanting.

Palate: Dry, medium+ body, medium+ acidity, full grippy tannins. Cherries, spices, raspberry, hint of leather, touch of oak. Well integrated flavor.

Finish: Long finish, violets, oak, red fruits.

Score: 82/100


Overall fairly well made from an excellent vintage in Piedmont, the tannins suggests this could benefit from perhaps another 2-5 years of ageing. The tannins makes it enjoyable with grilled meat, would love to see how this develops in the next few years.
