Nebbiolo is the noblest vine in Piedmont but it is also the most demanding in fact, being late ripening, it requires warm and sunny exposures and loose and well-drained soils; moreover, it pays particular attention to the management of the foliage and of the production, which must always be contained in order to facilitate and anticipate maturation as much as possible; from the organoleptic point of view it has the following characteristics.

Colour:
ruby red, of medium intensity, bright, lively

Aroma:
it shows evident floral notes of rose and violet accompanied by fruity hints of raspberry and cherry

Taste:
warm, harmonious with a slight tannic sensation that accompanies a long and very pleasant aftertaste

This Nebbiolo, thanks to its personality, goes well with savoury first courses, red meat dishes and wild game.
