The wine grape, Nebbiolo, comes from the Barbaresco, Neive and Treiso hills and part of San Rocco Seno d’Elvio d’Alba village, in Italy. The specific sun exposure of the vineyards, their microclimate and clayey limestone soil, packed with tufaceous marls, create the ideal terroir for top quality grapes.
A traditional Barbaresco, it is garnet red in colour with ruby highlights, and has an ethereal nose with rose and violet, red fruit jam, raspberry and also vanilla, nutmeg, white pepper and aniseed aromas. It is full-bodied in the mouth, with tannins which never predominate, and is balanced and long lasting.
