Langhe Nebbiolo is a wine made from the same grapes used to obtain Barolo, but it goes through a different wine-making process. Nebbiolo is certainly a lighter wine than Barolo but just as delicate, elegant and suitable for ageing. The vineyard in which the grapes are grown is the same one of the Barolo.
Work in the Nebbiolo vineyards starts in the winter with the pruning of the vinesand goes on with allegation, cleaning and cutting of the branches and ending with harvesting during the month of October.
