Vierti Giovanni Langhe 2010 Nebbiolo, $16,99-$21.99, 87 points, began with a lovely saignée Cabernet red with a clear rim against the glass at the surface.
Subtle floral perfume with a hint of orange zest wafted a faint, though pleasant aroma.
The medium body carried bright acidity and somewhat astringent tannins which were tart and puckering.
Flavors of pomegranate, plum, and flowers made their way through the haze of astringency, and facilitated the palate's transition to the trailing, but somewhat chalky finish.
I'm guessing that this wine could have been cellared for some time, maybe five or more years before drinking.
