Tasting notes

Nebbiolo grapes 100%.

A pure look, of a bright garnet red.

Concentrated nose on ripe fruit melted with herbaceous and spicy notes, defined aromas, of rare nobility.

The tasting is relaxed, firm, indestructible, full of structure. Silky and well-present tannins. Mileage persistence.

Calls for important meats at a perfect cooking. With Fassona beef you can’t be wrong, or, for a memorable evening, Kobe or Limousine.

Service temperature: 18 °C
