DESCRIPTION:

Nebbiolo grapes are picked from vines grown in the clay soil hills sorrounding Novara. Harvested in late October to ensure they are perfectly ripe. Pale garnet in colour, with a nose of red berry, red fruits and violets notes. The palate is intense and round, starting with the same red berries and evolving into spices and vanilla flavours from the oak ageing.
