Nebbiolo is a black grape variety that lives almost exclusively in Italy. It is a thick-skinned grape known for both high tannin and acidity. Nebbiolo is most-commonly associated with Northern Italy’s Piemonte region where it has grown since at least the 13th century.
The Nebbiolo grapes are hand-harvested during the first fortnight in October and stripped for fermentation with maceration on the grape skins for 10 days in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. The wine is then aged in oak casks for about six months and finally in stainless steel tanks.
This rich wine can accompany a whole meal by complementing pasta dishes, risotto, white and red meats, truffles dishes, and medium-aged cheeses.
Color: Intense ruby red color, with garnet according to aging, and orange shades.
Nose: Intense and delicate aromas of ripe fruit that evolve into spicy notes with subtle floral nuances.
Palate: The palate is full-bodied, tannic, and pleasantly cool.
