La Spinona’s Langhe Nebbiolo is produced with fruit from the Barbaresco crus of Faset and Ronchi. The organically grown grapes are hand-picked, destemmed and then given a short pre-ferment cold soak. Fermentation and one year’s maturation take place in tank in order to preserve freshness of the fruit.
The wine appears ruby red in the glass, and has a clean nose of roses, raspberries and cherries. On the palate there is freshness, with dried cherries and those oh-so important – though approachable – nebbiolo tannins.
