Nebbiolo is a very eclectic grape variety. It extracts many mineral nutrients from the hills made of limestone and clay soil which enrich its structure, while taking on fragrant and fruity aromas from soil rich in limestone and fine quartz sand. By including Michet grapes, which are characterized by small, loosely-packed bunches, the wine’s color and extract are enriched. This union creates a complete and harmonious wine, whose ample bouquet is perceived immediately. The wine is aged in small oak barrels and it is blended in the traditional large Slavonian oak barrels, which help to make it harmonious and balanced, enhancing the elegance of the bouquet. The wine reaches its peak condition between 2 and 8 years of age.

The color is ruby-red, tending towards garnet. The bouquet combines fruity hints of raspberry with spicy and ethereal aromas of violet and vanilla. The flavor is balanced and harmonious, with understated, docile tannins and a delicate oaky note.

Food pairings: thanks to its structure, the wine is well-matched with tasty appetizers, pasta dishes with rich sauces, roasted or stewed meats. It is also an ideal companion for fresh cold cuts and aged cheeses.
