In Nebbiolo terms a shade lighter, but that still means there's a good healthy dose of tannin and some bitter blackcherry fruit. For robust suppers. L&S (Feb 2019)

Beppe Accomo is a passionate, young and ambitious viticulturist making wines of excellent quality on his 20 hectare estate making gloriously uncomplicated, yet sophisticated wines that do not require years of bottle age. His Barbera is from old vines which produce tiny bunches of grapes making a wine with concentrated aromas of black cherries, deep colour, and fine rich flavour with hints of chocolate on the finish. Equally successful is the deep purple, ripe morello cherry fruit packed Dolcetto - one of the best from Diano d'Alba by a long stretch. His Nebbiolo is also chock full of raspberry and bilberry fruit with tremendous structure and length making it one of the best simple expressions of Nebbiolo which can be drunk on a regular basis and when relatively young.
Nebbiolo must be one of the world's great grape varieties, but it rarely thrives with any virtue outside of its native Piedmont. It is, of course, the variety behind the great wines of Barolo and Barbaresco, but there are other Nebbiolos at less lofty prices that offer that signiature combination of big-boned tannin and structure and delicate violet and tar fruit. Here we offer 'declassified' Barolo from Andrea Oberto, 'declassified' Barbarescos from Sottimano and Cigliuti, aswell as Bricco Maiolica's cracking 'Cumot' Nebbiolo made in the land between the two great regions.
