Region: Piedmonte, ITA
Nebbiolo made from grapes grown in Olek’s front yard, a small parcel his family planted around fifty years ago in one of Barbaresco’s most famous crus, Roncagliette. The site is exposed full south and its firm clay-limestone soils lend the Nebbiolo from here power and finesse. This is macerated on the skins for two months before being pressed off to old botti for a couple of years. A wine of incredible complexity, power and poise where every little thing seems to be in place.
