There are no two ways about it – Nebbiolo is one top-knotch grape. Sure it has the beautiful savoury fruit flavour of Italy which is topped off with the kind of perfume that you see in the likes of Pinot Noir. This is a very pretty wine that is complex and full of flavour. Italy at its best!
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 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.
Ideal with savoury pasta dishes, meats and medium-mature cheeses.
