Negro “Sudisfa”, Roero D.o.c.g. 2004

Dinign at the Hotel du Vin in Henley-on-Thames. Served with rib-eye and bearnaise sauce and frites…. This is a Nebbiolo from a good family estate in Piedmont. I wanted a Barolo, but they were all over £100 +. This was £61, which I find outrageous. It presented well, with its garnet, ruby robe. The nose was intensely perfumed and inticing and the first attack was decisive and forward. But then it all fell apart … the mid-palate disappeared and there was no finish. The alcohol dominated this wine and it has faded fast. Disappointing.
