Sottimano Langhe Nebbiolo 2015
Save $6.00 (21%)
The Langhe Nebbiolo is produced from the vineyard of Basarin, in the area of Neive. It is an historical and very prestigious vineyard. Its position on the border between the zone of Neive and Treiso, together with the high altitude, give to the wines a particular note of spices with a hint of licorice, as well a great complexity and a considerable structure. The vines are very young, about 14-15 years old, and for this reason the grapes cannot yet express the richness of polyphenols or all the aromas and the "nuances" that an important cru like this could have. That's why we decided to declassify it from Barbaresco docg to Langhe Nebbiolo.
