Nebbiolo d’Alba often offers the best value for money, and this wine is no exception! Made from Nebbiolo grapes grown on the sunny and steep vineyards of the Roero region – north of Alba. Roero Nebbiolo tends to possess a darker fruit profile than the wines of nearby Barolo, although they are less muscularly structured – a great feat for approachability in this instance!

Pale ruby colour with brick-like hue signals some development. Powerful and expressive aromas; baked strawberry, dark cherry yoghurt, tree bark and intriguing nuances of rust and blood. Attacks with an initial grip mellows into pure and juicy flavours to build up a grippy, textural finish. It might be a serious and confronting wine at first, but it flawlessly speaks the region and the grape variety.
