Nebbiolo from the Roero region, planted on sandy soils, which gives a soft and savoury version of this cépage. In 2020, the vine's growth cycle was slower than usual, the slow ripening Nebbiolo was given time to develop ripe and elegant aromas, with cherries, roses, some leather and anise.
Nice companion to steak tartare, grilled steak, sweetbreads and beef or veal dishes with mushrooms or truffles. Combine with feathered game, such as partridge, pheasant, wild duck and pigeon or guineafowl and quail. A classic with risotto with porcini or ceps.
