Nebbiolo Reserve

The pre-eminent wine of Italy, and possibly of all red wine, Nebbiolo has distinguished itself as one of our leading varietals since our first vintage, 1998. Our style is inspired by Barbaresco in cultivation and aging, and the wine unfolds in bottle at the stately pace for which it is so greatly appreciated by connoisseurs, for the most savory pairings of meats and game.

A fine vintage, despite some crop losses due to a spring frost, the growing season opened with well timed spring rainfalls followed by favorable dry conditions which enabled us to pick the Nebbiolo at peak condition.
