  • Regular price $23.00


Country: Italy
Region: Piemonte
Appellation: Langhe Nebbiolo DOC
Vineyard: Barbarossa in Agliano Terme
Grape Variety: 100% Nebbiolo

The Grape:
The origin of the word 'nebbiolo' is apparently a reference to hoarfrost which, when covering the young grapes, tends to make the vines look as if a thick fog has descended. Nebbiolo is a variety with thin skin and high tannins and acidity. It makes a powerful, full-bodied, complex wine that is deceptively light garnet red in color.

Winemaking:
Manual harvest, destemming and crushing of the grapes. Fermentation at controlled temperature in stainless steel vats. It refines for approximately 12–14 months in 30 hL oak cask.

Tasting Notes:
Red color with garnet red reflections, small red berries scents, balsamic and spicy notes. On palate it’s fine and complex, the great elegance of the tannins typical of the vine stands out.

Recommended Pairings:
It is a perfect wine to drink in combination with red meats, game and roasts. It is also excellent with any cheeses particularly with Piemontese ones like Robiola, Toma or Castelmagno.
