Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC

nebbiolo

Nebbiolo has always been the tradition, culture and rural pride of the Roero hills. A “red” of noble origin obtained from the vinification of the Nebbiolo grape. The sun drenched hills of this land give this wine its unmistakable fragrances and flavours; excellent features that place it among the aristocracy of the great wines.
