Light garnet color. Aromas of fig paste, cherry jam, peony, pomegranate, tack room, and green beans with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length red apple, plum, tar, and tobacco finish with grippy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A dry Nebbiolo with a beautiful floral, fruity nose.

Nebbiolo d'Alba is produced exclusively from Nebbiolo in vineyards that are not in the Barolo or Barbaresco production zone. Flavors are similar to those more famous wines - notes of dried cherry, orange peel, tar and roses - yet the wine is lighter with less tannic bite. Thus the wines are more approachable at an earlier age - consume these wines from five to ten years in most cases.

As Nebbiolo d'Alba is lighter and not as famous as Barolo and Barbaresco, it is often a good value and can serve as an excellent introduction to these iconic reds. Pair these with most red meats, game or aged cheeses.
