This Langhe Nebbiolo comes from a vineyard between Sinio and Serralunga, just outside the “nebbiolo da Barolo” area, but with the same kind of terroir.
This detail could be considered unfortunate, but Alessandro likes to think otherwise and indeed claims that this is the best Nebbiolo you can have on your hands: a ready-to-drink red, but one that can be kept for a decade or so.
Since a Barolo cannot be made from these grapes, the work in the winery focuses on maceration times, which are deliberately shorter than those of its cousin Barolo DOCG Comune di Serralunga d’Alba.
The soaking on the skins lasts about two weeks and sends the vigneron into a bit of a bind, as he has to estimate the right times, playing on the soft tannin, which comes out in the first five days, and the astringent tannin, which comes out later and helps the wine age better, but in this case it should not be excessive.
It is bright ruby red, which tends to fade with age.
Its fragrance is delicate, fruity and reminiscent of raspberry and violet.
It is dry, becoming soft, velvety and of good persistence with aging.
Alessandro recommends pairing it with an elegant barbecue. You can really indulge: it’s perfect with white meats, with mixed skewers, with fillets. Aim for quality meat and success is assured.
To avoid: appetizers that contain citrus, because, although soft and ready to drink, in the glass you have a tannic wine.
It’s your guy if…
…Grilling is a luxury you indulge in year-round and you want to accompany it with the right wine.
