Val Tassera (formerly Vallis Taxeria), was so called in the past due to the numerous badger dens it housed in its most hidden ravines.
Here, above Vezza d’Alba, Nebbiolo d’Alba Valtassera is born. Obtained from 100% Nebbiolo grapes, Nebbiolo wine is the maximum expression of nobility of local enology and has always been destined for bottle packaging. On the steep and sunny hillsides of Roero, the bunches of Nebbiolo acquire those characteristics of finesse and elegance that will give the wine those notes of aristocracy that make it unique and inimitable among all the great wines.
About the Valtassera
Nebbiolo d’Alba goes wonderfully with all the dishes of the Langhe tradition. Perfectly in harmony with pasta with meat sauce, dishes with truffles, roasts, grills and cheeses. For a perfect pairing, we recommend trying it with risotto with wild boar ragout and tajarin with truffles. Serve at a temperature of 16-18°C.
Nebbiolo d’Alba, what kind of wine is it?
The Nebbiolo vines that cover the Roero hills are the tradition, culture, pride and pride of the Roero winemakers. Nebbiolo has ancient origins, it is in fact mentioned by Roman writers and medieval chronicles. Its name is of uncertain etymology: there are those who trace it back to the late harvest, carried out when the first mists descend on the vineyards. Or the fact that the grapes are covered with an impalpable layer of grey-blue colour, reminiscent of fog. It flowers early and ripens late: this allows the plant to accumulate large quantities of organic substances and to supply the berries well, whose composition is therefore complete, to the full advantage of the richness and complexity of the wine.
