From the winery:
“This is a rather sophisticated wine, obtained through a wine making process of well matured grapes. Aged in French barriques (oak casks) it acquires a touch of elegance, and it is left to rest for long periods in the bottle before being placed on the market. It is best served with meat dishes.
The 2009 Stefano Farina Le Brume Langhe Rosso begins with a nice strong, complex aroma featuring black cherry, red cherry, smoky blackberry, spice and vanilla. This unique blend of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Merlot tastes delicious and complex and has soft tannins, good structure and nice acidity. You’ll also find a silky smooth texture with lots of fruit flavors similar to the nose but with more vanilla and spice in the mouth. It ends with a bit of toasty oak on the dry, savory finish which resolves into lingering sweet berry, smoky and spicy notes. Fantastic and it was even better on day 2!
