Sensory description: Sparkling purplish ruby with garnet highlights. Lively, crisp varietal expression on the nose, with redcurrant and raspberry in the lead, enriched with subtle notes of clove, nutmeg, and black pepper, concluding with nuances of liquorice and tar. A tangy vein of slaty mineral is the final tessera in an aromatic mosaic of great finesse. The palate, rich and heady, offers an ambitious dynamic of succulent, chewy fruit, firm tannins, and bright acidity, concluding with a lengthy, ultra-savoury finish that brings final balance to a delicious Nebbiolo.

Serving suggestions: Meat and light game dishes, such as roasts, stews, grills and barbecues.
