Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC
Nebbiolo, Piedmont’s most prestigious red grape, is a very sensitive variety, extremely demanding in terms of soils, climate, and growing environment. Harvest takes place in mid-October, when the autumn fog (nebbia) envelops the vine-clad hills, hence its name.
This particular Nebbiolo is sourced from vineyards in the famous Roero zone, in the province of Cuneo.
Winemaking is traditional in style. After fermentation, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in large oak botti. Further bottle-ageing contributes to the perfection of intense bouquet and full, rich flavours.
