Day 120 Drink: Gomba Boschetti Nebbiolo d' Alba 2005 Albie
Gomba S.S. Agricola produces wine in the Piedmonte region and is well known for its Barolos.
This DOC Italian wine is a light red color with a fresh berry nose. The 13.5 percent alcohol by volume wine has nice dark fruit notes and a decent level of tannins, but still is light and lively. A nice dry red to go with a chicken and pasta dish.
