Back Up The Truck - Piedmont Edition:
2020 Paitin Langhe Nebbiolo Starda

Posted by Ian McFadden

Paitin's Langhe Nebbiolo Starda represents unbeatable Piedmont value.

At $18.95 in 6-packs, this is simply an incredible value for delicious and unadorned Nebbiolo. Without a doubt, this is a wine that you'll want to buy in quantity. 

The 2020 Nebbiolo Starda showcases the bright side of Nebbiolo with beautiful complexity, verve, and nicely judged structure. The total package is irresistible

The Paitin family has been in Barbaresco since 1796 and, for decades upon decades, has been turning out classically structured expressions of Nebbiolo. The wines have been go-to's for value seekers. 

The story here is simple: conscientious winemaking and choice terroir. 

The Nebbiolo Starda is sourced from the Starda parcel of Barbaresco's Bricco di Neive cru. For an inexpensive wine, it's sourced from a pretty impressive site, and you sense that in the wine. It offers up layers of spice, herbs, floral notes, and citrus. The framing tannins give the wine a touch of seriousness while not sacrificing any of the deliciousness. 

It's rare that I encounter Nebbiolo of this caliber at this price. After tasting the 2020 Nebbiolo Starda, we immediately started to plan an offer. Don't miss this. 

To order, email or call the store at (212) 980-9463.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "Just bottled a few days before this tasting, the 2020 Langhe Nebbiolo Starda is effusive in its aromatics and nervy in feel. Sweet tobacco, cedar, blood orange, mint and dried red cherry are all beautifully lifted. The 2020 spent nine months in cask. It should be stellar with a few more months in bottle. It is already pretty delicious."
