Mauro Sebaste Parigi Nebbiolo
Review By Eric Tansey, CSW, Sommelier The Mauro Sebaste Parigi Nebbiolo has a beautiful and very floral nose. Extracted flower scents that remind me of my Mimi’s perfume, followed by hints of fresh cherry and ever-so-subtle licorice aromas that lift from the glass.
On the palate, the Mauro Sebaste Parigi Nebbiolo has an elegant balance of fruit and “Valentine’s Day” characteristics that remind you of florist shops and chocolates. Robust cherry and violets flood the mouth, with cocoa and licorice characteristics on the mid-palate.
The flavors really meld nicely and transform into other, more complex and interesting notes as the full bodied wine sits on the palate. The finish is bright with acidity that tickles the throat and ample tannins that dry out the cheeks, leaving you with no other option but to smile. Sit back and enjoy the lengthy finish, as you dive into a great book, or as you enjoy a great meal. Cheers!

What is Nebbiolo
Nebbiolo is a red grape varietal from the Piedmonte region of North West Italy. The grape variety produces wines that are very light red in color, but have big tannins and earthy characteristics.
These wines are often much better the older they get, five to ten years is a minimum cellar time for these wines. Fruit characteristics like raspberry and cherry are common but it’s the earth driven qualities that really make these wines intriguing and complex. Tar, violets, herbs, tobacco, and even dry leather characteristics can be found in these superb wines.
For the perfect example of a great Nebbiolo, try wines from the regions of Barolo and Barbaresco and try to seek out some great vintages including 2000, 2001 and 2011. Cheers! Eric Tansey, CSW
