Langhe Nebbiolo DOC Vintage 2019

Tasting Notes

The Nebbiolo grapes grown on our hills give a wine with a ruby red colour moving to garnet red while evolving.

At the nose, it expresses all the aromas of the small red soft fruits, such a raspberries and wild strawberries, as well as peach, plums and the typical floral notes of our terroir.

The flavour expresses the characteristics of a medium-bodied, well-structured wine, with sweet and appealing tannins, typical of our land.

Ideal to accompany meat sauces and starters, such as chopped meat.

Curiosities

Nebbiolo is the most famous grape variety of Piedmont, known all over the world.

Nebbiolo is the father of three extraordinary wines: Roero, Barbaresco, and Barolo.

The name derives from “nebbia” (fog), because the grapes are harvested when the first autumn fogs appear.

The grapes have the typical deep violet colour, reminding of the colour of the plums.
