FOOD PAIRING: Veal roast, shellfish, and desserts that are not too sweet.
COMMENTS: A wine that can be enjoyed when young but gains finesse as it ages.
Nebbiolo is a wine of magnificent garnet-red color with a light purple hint at the rim. At a young age, it has notes of blackberries, violets and truffles on the nose, and with enough time in bottle; cedar and leathery nuances. The wine itself is splendidly robust, complex and full bodied. Its very noticeable tannins, evident acidity and overall herbal bouquet give it a fine roundness and it has a clean and lively attack thanks to its high level of alcohol. If it is given enough time to breathe before drinking, flavors of red fruits and spices become more evident.
