2013 Langhe Nebbiolo DOC
We produce this wine with the grapes that, according to the vintage, are not suitable for making Barbaresco. Among them, all new planted vineyards bought in the past few years, and consequently considered too young for producing a great Barbaresco.
Liquor Style: Dry Red
Varietal: 100% Nebbiolo
Description: Clear, bright, purple red with evident clearer tannic nuances around the glass edge. Olfactory sensations are persistent, fragrant and wide open exalting the fruit of the wine. It is also rounded by evident perception of strawberry and raspberry typical in this wine. Good gustative persistence with the classic light tannin astringency of Nebbiolo, very well rounded by the wood aromas and other flavour components (such as minerals). Lovely finish, persistent and stimulating.
Bottle Closure: Cork
Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Standard Drinks: 8.3
Vinification: We try to exalt the Nebbiolo's characteristics of freshness. Macerations are not too long and always temperature controlled. Ageing is made partly in barrique (20/30%) and the rest in 50 hl oak barrels for around 8/9 months. After blending, it rests in the bottle for 2 months
Country of Origin: Italy
Region of Origin: Piemonte
Sub-region of Origin: Treiso, Neive and Barbaresco villages
>> "Alluring aromas of flowers, cherry, strawberry, sandalwood and leather mark this muscular red. Finishes on the firm side, but should develop well. Drink now through 2021."
