“The 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo Montegrilli is a terrific wine that faithfully represents the best of Nebbiolo, without the extra bells or whistles. One-third of the wine undergoes carbonic maceration in order to remove some of the tannic astringency you get with the grape. The fruit is pressed very delicately and the wine made in stainless steel. Thanks to this hand-off approach, you are awarded a fresh and bright bouquet with direct primary fruit. This is an easy-drinking wine to pair with simple meat dishes. Fruit is sourced from the Ravera cru.”

Deep ruby red in color with a slight orange edge. Harmonious, well-balanced aroma, a pleasant blend of floral, fruity, and soft spicy scents, with a finish of rose, violet, and vanilla. Fresh, lively bouquet, with harmonious tannins and alcohol and balanced acidity. Soft, elegant, and full-bodied with a very long aftertaste. Redolent of freshly macerated red berries, raspberry, and redcurrant.
Serving suggestion: Goes well with robust roasts and hard, well-aged cheeses.
