Nebbiolo, the noble variety typical from Piedmont, gets the name from “pruina”, a substance we can find on the skins of the berries that makes them look like they’re covered by fog (“brumo” in Italian).

Manual selective harvest, crushing and destemming; fermentation in stainless steel at a controlled
temperature; maceration on the skins with daily pumping of the must over the cap.

Vanilla overtones, with wonderful varietal fruit captured;  medium+ bodied, elegant, persistent with softer dry tannins making this eminently quaffable.
