  4. Nebbiolo Langhe DOC

This wine is made entirely from the noble Nebbiolo variety, grown in vineyards situated in the Langhe hills in southwestern Piedmont. The grapes are crushed and macerated in contact with the skins for fifteen days to ensure greater color extraction. After fermentation, the wine is aged for one year in a combination of new and seasoned large oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

Pale garnet in color, this wine offers delicately layered aromas of dried red cherries, plums, cola and sweet spice. On the palate, the wine is perfectly structured with integrated, fine-grained tannins and lively acidity, which along with its rich flavors, evolve into a sumptuously long finish.

Food Pairing

Ideal with robustly flavored cheese or braised beef dishes.
