If you appreciate the suave, silky yet powerful appeal of a Barolo, you’ll want to get your hands on the newly released 2017 Muscedere Nebbiolo, VQA Lake Erie North Shore. But the winery only made 40 cases, so it will sell out fast. Nebbiolo is of course the grape variety of Barolo and is difficult to find outside its native region of Piedmont, Italy. But this winery grows it and is clearly capable of making marvellous wine with it. The 2017 Muscedere Nebbiolo shines pale ruby-amber, as you’d expect for Nebbiolo, which can turn slightly amber early despite its long aging potential. The aromas are seductive, allusive. Dried rose, gentle blackberry and black pepper aromas merge with shy suggestions of caramelized meat drippings. It streams in with a glossy mouth feel then unspools with elegant fruit — black fruit mostly — laced with an intricate tapestry of flavour that echoes the elements found on the nose. A light little tug on the finish lends just the right amount of structure to each sip. Though this wine isn’t velvety and fruit forward like, say, a Cabernet Sauvignon, it’s still a powerhouse packing 14 per cent alcohol. 40 cases made.
