Produttori del Barbaresco 1995 Langhe Nebbiolo ($10.99)
Clear ruby, rather light in color for a Piemontese red. Delicious red-fruit aromas, tart cherries and apple skin. Fresh, bright flavor, consistent with the nose, so fruity that it almost seems sweet, but with plenty of acidity to keep it in balance. Clean and appealing in a long finish. U.S. importer not shown, apparently a direct import by Kentucky's Liquor Outlet/Party Source chain. (Jan. 5, 1998)

FOOD MATCH: Chosen to accompany a hearty Northern Italian dinner of mild sausages simmered in red wine and wild mushrooms over polenta.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
