Le Pianelle 2016 Rosso al Forte Red (Coste della Sesia)
A blend of Nebbiolo, Vespolina and Croatina, this features aromas of dark-skinned berry, violet and a whiff of exotic spice. The linear, racy palate offers black cherry, white pepper and a hint of tangy mineral alongside a backbone of firm acidity and taut tannins. Kerin O’Keefe

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
