Langhe Nebbiolo



“Dark, mysterious and yet welcoming”

The name Nebbiolo derives from the name nebbia which means fog in Italian
and is named as such because the harvest usually takes place during late
October. The first mention of the Nebbiolo grape dates back to the 12th century.
Our Nebbiolo grapes are grown on the south east slopes of our vineyards
and are carefully selected and harvested by hand.
