Description:

This classically-styled tiny production Nebbiolo is essentially declassified Barbaresco made by a husband and wife team in the Langhe region of Piemonte. Made traditionally, with an old-school, hands-off approach to winemaking, this wine sees no chemicals or sprays in the vineyard. Presenting fragrant notes of cherry cordial on the nose, this is dusty, earthy, super delicious stuff that reveals notes of leather, tobacco and bright red cherry fruit as it aerates in the glass.
