Nebbiolo d’Alba Superiore DOC “Valeirole”

Grape variety: Nebbiolo
Alcohol: 13.50 % vol
Serving temperature: 18° – 20° C

Our Nebbiolo Valeirole is an assemblage of nebbiolo grapes grown in the heart of the classic area of wine production. These silica-rich soils yield wines impressive both for their elegance and aromas.
Winemaking practices are traditional in style. The must macerates on the skins for some 15 days at 28-30°C, followed by the alcoholic fermentation. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and ageing in small oak botti for about 12 months. Then it spends some other months in the bottle before the powerful structure and elegant aromas reach an optimal equilibrium.
