About the Wine
The Luigi Vico Langhe Nebbiolo Ne Bis in Idem packs a lot of punch in the bottle. Opening with bright cherry and spice aromas, the perfumed scents develop even more after a bit of airing. On the palate, the red fruits and spice are complemented by some tar and tea characters, as well as vibrant acidity and tannins that are finally coming together, making for a lovely wine all round.
Interesting note: the Latin term on the bottle, 'Ne Bis in Idem', literally means 'not twice about the same', otherwise known as the legal term 'double jeopardy', where a person cannot be tried twice for the same criminal offence.
About Az. Agr. Luigi Vico
The story of Luigi Vico is one of longing to reconnect with one's past. Having moved away from the hills of Barolo to make a life in Turin, Luigi felt the call back to his home when the long-term rental contracts on his family's vineyards were expiring. Having helped his grandparents in these same vineyards as a boy, the pull to return to make wine under his own name was undeniable.
Luigi sought the help of winemaker Davide Rosso, of famed winery Giovanni Rosso in Serralunga, and the two are already responsible for crafting some seriously beautiful wines, though it seems like the best is yet to come.
