Our Langhe Nebbiolo is produced from grapes grown on the younger vineyards facing South–East, in the same area as the Nebbiolo used to make Barolo. Compared to the Barolo of the same vintage, the Langhe Nebbiolo undergoes a shorter maceration on the skins, and is not matured in wood. Its attractive tannins are therefore those found naturally in the Nebbiolo grape itself, and the wine has good structure. It is normally ready to drink without needing to be aged.
Tasting notes: our Langhe DOC Nebbiolo is garnet red with ruby highlights. Its delicate, varietal nose shows notes of violet, red fruit and spices. On the palate it is intense and robust, with delicate tannins enhancing a full-bodied, rounded structure.
