Langhe Nebbiolo



 

Variety of vine: 100% Nebbiolo

 

Vineyard position: Castagnito, Piedmont, Italy.

In the countryside of Castagnito is a particular hill named Costa, mentioned in the history of the Nebbiolo vine in ancient documents; it is particularly suited for the production of a fine and elegant wine.

The average age of the vineyards is 20 years.

The yield per hectare is very low, allowing us to obtain a Langhe Nebbiolo of high quality.

 

Soil: Clayey with sand

 

Date of harvest: Beginning of October

 

Yield per hectare: 55 hl

 

Wine-making: The harvesting is done in two periods spaced with one week in between.

For 4-5 days the maceration develops in stainless steel casks, after which the wine rests in oak casks of 600 litres for 8-9 months before being transferred again to stainless steel casks.

It’s bottled in June and September and is ready for the market one year after harvest.

 

Tasting notes: The colour is red and it has an ethereal, elegant fragrance; there are hints of violet, marasca cherry, and final notes of spice. It’s full, aristocratic, and delicate.

 

Dishes: This wine is perfect with roasts, game, and aged cheeses.

 

Recommended serving temperature: 18° C.
