Red of Nebbiolo

"Vignarionda is in the parish of Serralunga, on the east side of the Barolo appellation (the winery is in La Morra, on the west side of the appellation). It is one of the best vineyards in the appellation by any measure; Serralunga is known for meaty, chewy Nebbiolo, and as you’d expect the Oddero family’s bottling of this ‘cru’ is deeply colored (for the variety), more towards the spicy/sous-bois/tealeaf/dark chocolate end of the spectrum than the fruit and flowers end, and one of the best wines for bottle-aging anywhere. It is of course made traditionally, with long macerations with the skins and aging in large barrels for a long time (about 40 months). Outstanding wine." -Oliver McCrum
