Nebbiolo, “Valplazza”, Colline Novaresi
From the Valplazza vineyard in the Barragiola section of southern Ghemme. Following total destemming, wine ferments spontaneously in stainless-steel tanks. A quintessential expression of Nebbiolo from the Alto Piemonte, with brisk acidity, gripping tannins, and notes of red cherry and raspberry. While delicious in its youth, this wine gains gravitas and profundity with a few years of bottle age.
The family vinifies and ages its products in a mosaic of tiny underground cellars stacked high with decades-old botti, spread around Ghemme’s Ricetto, a 10th-century central walled compound that protected the townsfolk during times of strife and war.Learn more
