When you think of the Alps, you might think skiing or the Sound of Music. For us, we think about the Italian wine region known as Piedmont. Meaning at the foot of the mountains, this region borders France and Switzerland and is one of the largest winegrowing regions in Italy. Over 170,000 acres of DOC vineyards are used to make famous wines like Barolo, Barbaresco, Moscato d'Asti and more. What makes this wine so good? Two things: the ice cold Alps and the warm weather from the Mediterranean. These factors create what's known as a Diurnal temperature variation, a kind of tug-of-war between cooler, foggy mornings and warmer, sunnier afternoons. The end result are wines like nowhere else in the world. Don't believe us? Try these for yourself!
The carefully-performed wine-making process brings out the best in this bright straw-yellow coloured wine.When young, its full, rich bouquet is flowery and intensely fruity, lingeringon the nose, while with the passing of time it develops the classical overtones of honey, acacia and exotic fruit. It has a full, well-balanced taste, with good
body and persistence.

Ruby red colour with garnet reflexes. The bouquet is reminiscent of underbrush (red currant, blackberry, blueberry), prune jam, licorice, with nuances of chocolate and toasted coffee. On the palate the sweet and smooth tannins of Nebbiolo give volume, roundness and mingle with the acidity of Barbera, giving freshness and sapidity to the aftertaste.
