This Italian red wine is made from 100% Nebbiolo, the queen of the black grapes.

It is an absolute gem from the Langhe, this Nebbiolo is a classic example of reds from this area of Italy. Aged for 6 months in large wooden barrels has softened the tannins, this wine shows red fruits and black cherry flavours on the palate with violet, and tertiary notes of leathery wood.

It is medium-bodied and intense, this is a great match for dishes from the area such as chicken in balsamic vinegar sauce, rolls of cooked meats stuffed with vegetables, or vitello tonnato.

The Casali del Barone range showcases some of the most typical wines from the Piemonte Area. The personality of the wines from this area is celebrated through Casali del Barone, beautifully expressing the Langhe, Piemonte, Barbaresco and Barolo vineyards.

More Information

Piedmont, Italy

Piedmont is affected by a tug-of-war between two weather systems: the ice cold Alps and the warm Mediterranean temperature. This variation makes the whole area fill up with morning fog that slowly burns off during the day. This means the land higher up on the hills gets more sun. More sun = happy grapes = good wine. It's why Piedmont (or Piemonte) is considered to be Italy's best wine growing region.

Nebbiolo

Often referred to as the queen of black grapes, Nebbiolo is the grape of legendary wines such as Barolo and Barberesco. The name derives from nebia which translates as "fog", due to the morning fog which hangs around the vineyards.

The wines are high in tannins, repaying the patient with their ageworthyness. With time they will often develop flavours of violets, herbs, dark fruit and truffles.
