Review: 2017 Renato Ratti Nebbiolo Ochetti Langhe

Renato Ratti is a well-known Barolo wine producer, but it also produces other wines iconic to the Piedmont region, including barbera. This wine, Ochetti, is made from the same grapes as Barolo (the nebbiolo grape), but is available for less than half the price.

It also tastes quite a bit different than a standard Barolo, substituting Barolo’s classic density for a more fruit-forward character that pushes black cherry, raspberry, and plum notes, informed by a lacing of sultry tobacco and mushroom. Hints of pencil lead and some dusky spices emerge as the finish builds, particularly with time in glass. A solid value.
