Description

This well-balanced red is made in a traditional way, with a 7-8 day floating cap fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature (28° C). The ageing goes on in wood for at least 8 months and then in the bottle for at least 2-3 months. When young, it features a fragrance which is wonderfully spontaneous and full of surprise: in its bouquet, colour, and generous, velvety body this Langhe Nebbiolo brings out all the typical qualities of the magnificent vine it is made from. With the time its colour becomes garnet-red with strong orange hues, and its nose achieves more complexity, showing notes of withered flowers, such as roses and, above-all, geraniums. In the mouth it is warm, soft, full in flavour, velvety, well-balanced and lingering.
