Production

After some research, Soumah planted numerous Nebbiolo clones on a north-west slope to give the fruit every opportunity to ripen slowly in the golden autumn sun. Grapes were gently picked the fruit and fermented the juice in tank. After fermentation, the wine was left on skins for 120-days to soften the tannins, then aged the wine in seasoned puncheons (500L barrels) for 24 months.

Tasting notes

The wine has a light crimson colour and a bouquet of violets and roses with a spicy tobacco and tar foundation. It is elegant in the mouth with red berry flavours and supportive tannins giving way to great length.

Food match

Juicy slow cooked wild beef stew with roasted winter vegetables and green beans, or a simple cheese platter with creamy taleggio.
