Langhe Nebbiolo is produced from grapes grown on the younger vineyards facing South-East, in the same area as the Nebbiolo used to make Barolo. The maximum yield of 8,000 kg./Ha is also the same.
Compared to the Barolo of the same vintage, the Langhe Nebbiolo undergoes a shorter maceration on the skins, and is not matured in wood. Its attractive tannins are therefore those found naturally in the Nebbiolo grape itself, and the wine has good structure.
It is normally ready to drink without needing to be aged.
Our 2008 Langhe DOC Nebbiolo is garnet red with ruby highlights.
Wild roses prevail on the nose, alongside raspberry notes and a hint of tar.
The smooth, inviting taste lingers on the mouth, leading into a mineral and violet finish.
