Only Nebbiolo grapes grown on the Bricco di Neive hill are used in making this wine. It matures for 12 months in 30-hl Slavonian oak casks, with the precise aim of preserving an aromatic core that shows on the nose in sensations of plum, dark berries and sweet spices. Mouthfilling, fruity and tight.
Elegant tannins. For those who love tradition, it goes well with Langa dishes such as thinly-cut tajarin pasta with a rabbit sauce. For the more adventurous it makes a good pairing with scorpion fish poached in a flavourful broth. More cosmopolitan gourmets will find it makes a perfect match for many Mexican dishes.
