Nebbiolo, the basic grape variety for the production of great Piedmont wines such as Barolo and Barbaresco, exceptionally finds a historic collocation in this small area of the Monferrato district near the province of Turin. Only the best hillside slopes of four boroughs produce Nebbiolo grapes for the production of Albugnano, an extremely limited production which is expressed with class and elegance, and can be defined as ”Superiore” if the wine stays in the cellar for at least 12 months, and matures in oak barrels.
Colour ranging from ruby red to more or less intense garnet, it develops delicate scents of raspberry and wild strawberries, and slight floral and spicy notes, which become more complex when matured in oak barrels. Dry, with good body and a slight tannic vein, it offers good persistence in terms of taste.
Excellent with meat dishes, and game, and with medium and long-term maturing.
