Laboro Disubbidiente

b2ap3_thumbnail_Laboro-Disubbidiente-web.jpg

100% Nebbiolo, appellation Barolo!!, hand picked from vines 60 years old growing defiantly in sandy clay soil. The wine is aged for 5years in oak barrels at least 6 years old and 12 months in the bottle before release. This Kermit Lynch import does it comply with the tangled web of Italian wine rules and, hence, the label. The wine is a renegade and, like all rebels, just plain sexy. Kermit Lynch says:

Laboro Disubbidiente:
The 2005 Laboro Disubbidiente was originally meant to be the Fantino’s 2005 Barolo Riserva, but bureaucratic red-tape and a series of miscommunications led to the Fantino brothers missing the deadline to have their wine certified as “Riserva.” “Laboro”, an anagram from Barolo, pays homage the hard work the brothers put into making the wine. “Disubbidiente” means disobedient, referencing the brothers’ act of rebellion against the Barolo appellation authorities by releasing the wine on their own terms under a new name. The label was design by Sergio Staino, an Italian comics artist and writer.

If you want it, come and get it. Disubbidiente will not last!
