Ciuèt Coste della Sesia Nebbiolo DOC

    • Description :

      The Nebbiolo grapes used for this wine are grown in an area of the vineyard that has a greater concentration of sandy-clay, also known as Ciuèt, hence the name of this wine. After harvest, the grapes are carefully de-stemmed and crushed and flow via gravity into steel tanks where spontaneous fermentation begins and maceration on the skins takes place for 7-10 days at a controlled temperature of 28 ° C (82.4° Fahrenheit). The wine is racked into 15L oval casks (Austrian-Swiss oak) where it rests for a minimum of 18 months. The wine is then bottled and stored in the estate's cellars for further refinement.

      Tasting notes :

      A deep ruby red in color with accents on the nose of roses, violets, red fruits and spices. Dry on the palate with structuring tannins and notes of cherries, forest fruits and crushed spices. Delicious when paired with salami, risotto, red meats,
      mushrooms, truffles, and hard cheeses. A great example of the harmony, roundness, structure, and elegance that is typical of the Nebbiolo wines of Lessona.
