Chiavennasca AKA Nebbiolo, Lombardia, Italy

A rare & riveting single-vineyard Nebbiolo from a star of Northern Italy!

The grapes from a vineyard just above winery, burrowed into the hillside beneath the majestic ruins of Grumello . . .

The grapes from a vineyard just above winery, burrowed into the hillside beneath the majestic ruins of Grumello Castle. After a slow, four month maceration and a year and a half in chestnut botti, this rustic, alpine red drinks like a cozy, mulled treat – blue fruit, red saffiano leather, anise, fried sage, black olive brine, espresso martini & granite-veined tannins with a lifted, cursive finish. A gift to the patient & gracious towards the impatient, you could easily age this for decades. Pair with chicharron chips & nights spent stargazing.
