Andrea, thank you for joining us in eGullet. I know I appreciate the opportunity to visit with you and learn your thoughts.

If you could hold a perfect glass of nebbiolo in your hand, how would you describe it?

Your question was one of the first that I saw, but I preferred to wait a little...
It's very difficult for me to imagine a"perfect"Nebbiolo, maybe because I prefer to think that sometimes what I've tasted was an"almost" perfect wine, but I will always look for(...or,why not? I will try to do it!...)an even better Barbaresco or Barolo.
It's like someone asks to you what is you favourite Jazz or Blues song?In your mind there will be not one song , but one thousand!From Skip James, to John Lee Hooker, etc...
It's the same for me; my idea of perfect Barbaresco or Barolo is a wine in the middle of a Giacosa 89 or 78, a Clerico 89 or 96, a Monfortino 61, a Gaja 74 or 89,
a Sandrone 89, a Scavino 89 or 99.......

Best,

Andrea

Thank you! That's a wonderful analogy, and one I will think of often.
