Maria Grazia Langhe Nebbiolo doc

 

Grape-variety: 100% Nebbiolo

Vineyard: The Nebbiolo grapes used in making this Langhe Nebbiolo wine were grown on 0.34 hectares of the Ovello cru located in Barbaresco

Soil: Compact, mainly clay and limestone

Position: Facing south-west

Altitude: Between 220 and 260 m

Vine-training: Arched-cane Guyot

Vinification: Crushing and de-stemming of the grapes in the winery were followed by fermentation of the must on the skins for 10 days

Maturation: After drawing off and partial clarification, the wine was matured for 6 months in oak casks and 3 months in steel

Ageing: Prior to its release, the wine was aged after bottling for at least 3 months in bottles lying down in the dark and peace & quiet of the cellar

Tasting notesBright ruby-red with ruby highlights; full, fruity nose showing nice raspberry and red currant overtones; full, dry flavour, with good structure and minerality

Food pairingsThis appealing, elegant wine pairs nicely with meat starters, stuffed pasta, and fried red and white meats. A good match too for medium mature cheeses.

StorageBest kept at a constant temperature in the dark and silence of an underground cellar
