Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC

Tasting: The long maceration and the aging in wood, give our Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC a powerful but elegant structure due also to the noble tannins matured by this vineyard. It is a wine that has a very broad bouquet that includes small red fruits, spices, such as cinnamon and cloves, and of flowers, such as violets.

  The Vineyard

The vineyard from which we produce our Nebbiolo d’Alba is located exactly below the winery, at 350m, perfectly sheltered from the summit winds and facing SW. It is part of the landscape that can be admired from the window of our tasting room and with its light green color it stands out from the more reddish dolcetto vineyards on top of it . The geological origin of the soil is the Marls of Sant’Agata Fossili, this type is “with sands”, which gradually fades into the Cassinasco Formation (former Lequio Formation). We can therefore affirm that the mother rock is dated from 10 to 11 million years ago, between the Serravallian and Tortonian planes. The climate is suitable to the Nebbiolo grape, you can see it by the precocity of budding, which every year is ealier compared to the surrounding vineyards, and by the temperature variations created by the cold night breezes descending from the slope: in the pre-autumn period they are essential for a correct ripening of tannins. The exposure and the altitude complete the picture of the excellent terroir for the noblest of Piedmontese vines.
