Brandini Filari Corti Nebbiolo Langhe 2016
The Langhe Nebbiolo is the finest and most elegant expression of this grape variety. An intense, garnet color, it anticipates a structure and a tannin that are typical of Nebbiolo. Aromas are fine and deep, with scents of rose, violet and mint. The land of La Morra, with its sandy soils, reveals the most feminine nuance of this wine, giving a silky tannin and a good persistence in the mouth.

You don’t know what it wants and you’ve underestimated its character. But you can feel it watching your every move. A cunning presence lingers, like a thorn in your side. It isn’t going anywhere.
While working with their growers in Napa Valley, The Prisoner team came across small, premium vineyard lots of Merlot, which served as their inspiration to create Thorn 2014. The Merlot was blended with Syrah to create depth in the body while Malbec accentuates the fruit. Earthy aromas open up into cocoa, blackberry, cedar, and anise. The entry is smooth with flavors of cherry, chocolate, vanilla, and a mild toastiness. The finish is long with balanced acidity. 77% Merlot; 23% Blend of Malbec and Syrah.
