King of Piedmontese vines, nebbiolo – vinifying it as “Langhe Nebbiolo” – favored the exaltation of the primary aroma of fruit and sandy soil that the land of Valmaggiore (Vezza d’Alba) confers. The vinification and aging involve exclusively steel and glass.
Nebbiolo is one of the vine varieties that unites the production fortunes of the hills to the right and left of the Tanaro river and the Langhe Nebbiolo. Just as that of Alba is the tangible example of this common vocation for quality in its area of origin. Langhe Nebbiolo is a single-varietal red wine. It expresses important tones and is capable of resisting time and positioning itself positively among the other great offspring of the Nebbiolo vine. It expresses itself at its best after a few years and this depends on the land in which it was born. The color is ruby red then garnet, the scent combines the fruity scents of raspberry, geranium and wild strawberry with the ethereal and spicy ones of cinnamon and vanilla. The taste, totally dry, makes use of a remarkable structure, where alcohol, acidity and extract create sensations of harmony and elegance.
About the Langhe Nebbiolo
Nebbiolo is an autochthonous black grape variety from Piedmont (Italy), considered valuable and suitable for high quality aging wines. Served at 18-20°C, it is a wine that can accompany an entire meal. Finds a perfect match with pasta dishes, risottos, white and red meats, tasty and medium-aged cheeses. By definition it is a vine suitable for aging, it is in fact very stable in the aromas, which with tertiarisation become increasingly complex and interesting. While the color, due to the characteristic profile of the anthocyanins, tends to evolve rapidly towards garnet.
