91pointsBarboursville Vineyards 2010 Reserve Nebbiolo (Virginia)

Editors' Choice

Nebbiolo in Virginia? Yep, not surprising considering Italian-born winemaker Luca Paschina is behind it. Brown spice, tar and licorice notes hit the nose first, followed by scents of dried herb and desiccated black fruit. It's a medium- to full-bodied wine, bearing a chewy structure, bold flavors and a protracted finish. This will gain in complexity and finesse with a few years of bottle age. If opening now, pair with grilled meats like wild boar and lamb.
