NEBBIOLO D'ALBA DOCG SUPERIORE
South East exposition, altitude 380 m asl. White clay-calcareous soils. The light color of the soil is due to the high amount of calcium carbonate. Clay, present in greater quantities than silt and sand, associated with a high quantity of calcium carbonate, allows the Nebbiolo to grow and complete its vegetative cycle without water stress and with limited vegetative vigor. This type of soil gives the wine longevity, freshness, elegance and a great character

ARMONIA it is difficult to translate what Armonia in Italian means. Literal translation is about music, harmony, something with a pleasant sound in your ears. We can talk about our Nebbiolo of balance, and grace and elegance, combining with big power and length. A traditional Nebbiolo of the Alba region
“Mature ruby red colour with an orange rim. The nose offers some wood, dry spices, fresh red fruit, cherry liqueur and tar. The palate is fairly dense, still with a youthful texture, a tannic bite, fresh red fruit, good grip and length.”.
