Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC 2013 – Negretti

This is a red wine with very long-standing traditions. It is made from nebbiolo grapes grown on the hills of La Morra, considered one of the finest zone for grown nebbiolo using the classic Guyot vine-training system.

For the Negretti family to make an important Nebbiolo, with selected grapes, is a choice, a tribute to the varietal that made this land famous. And the medium textured with tendency to calcareous soil of La Morra gives it a powerful
body but a very fine elegance.

The grapes are harvested in october. In the winery they are de-stemmed and crushed before the must ferments on the skins for 12-14 days at a controlled temperature. The wine is then drawn off for ageing, partly in french Allier oak barrels for 12 months.

Before selling the bottles are best stored lying down away from sources of light and changes in the temperature, which could affect the wine’s structure.
