Lessona DOC VQPRD, Massimo Clerico 2006

Inventory Status: Out of Stock - do not order this
product at this time


100% Nebbiolo from low-yielding vines planted in 1970 by the Clerico family in the tiny appellation of Lessona in northern Piedmont. The warm, dry climate of 2006 produced one of the greatest vintages for this extraordinary Nebbiolo. Aged for an extended period of 40 months, instead of the usual 30 months, in French barriques. This has the intense bouquet of tar and rose petals of classic Nebbiolo. Open and warm flavors of red fruits and spices that are graceful and precise on the palate. Really impressive concentration. Excellent structure and freshness. Very lovely, expressive Nebbiolo that should continue to gain in finesse over many years. Only 167 cases made.
