Langhe Nebbiolo DOC

Tasting Notes

Langhe Nebbiolo is a wine made from the same grapes used to obtain Barolo and the vineyard is also the same.

However, it goes through a different wine-making process.

It is certainly a lighter wine than Barolo but just as delicate, elegant and suitable for aging.

Work in the Nebbiolo vineyards starts in the winter with the pruning of the vines and goes on with allegation, cleaning and cutting of the branches and ending with harvesting during the month of October.

Aging comes in tonneaux (500 liters) for about 2/3 months, followed by bottling and a wait of at least 6 months in tilted bottles.

Colour: red, not so intense.

Fragrance: delicate and fruity.

Taste: dry although dense, recalling fruits such as raspberries. Aging it becomes velvety and soft.

Temperature: 18 – 19°C.

Gastronomic combinings: fondues, risottos and meat dishes.
