Nice to get some good news these days. Lorenzo Negro has sent us our new set of Roero Nebbiolo Riserva Magnums. He has also sent the second vintage ever of his Nebbiolo Rosato. Many of you are very familiar with Lorenzo’s wines with the elegant Roero style and great value.

The 2019 Negro Lorenzo Roero Rosato has the attractive tasty fruit you want with a completely dry finish. It also has a cool underlying structure with just the right note of spice. Perfect as an aperitivo and with light meals.

The 2011 Negro Lorenzo San Francesco Riserva Nebbiolo Magnum is, as usual, an amazing value. Lorenzo holds these at the winery for us until he thinks they are ready to drink. And, he does not charge us more for all that storage. Lorenzo is a perfectionist in the vineyards and the winery. As you can see, he is also quite generous in his marketing decisions.

 

2019 Negro Lorenzo Roero Rosato: Deep pink. Lots of fruit including strawberry, raspberry and cherry. Floral notes and white pepper. Bright dry finish.  Very Good Plus Plus  21/bottle  214/case

 

2011 Negro Lorenzo San Francesco Riserva Nebbiolo Magnum: Perfectly balanced with rich dark cherry fruit. Violets and roses, Asian spice and herb. Integrated tannins and a complex finish.  Excellent  68/magnum NET
