Why we love it
Nebbiolo is the most important grape from Langhe.
This wine is a perfect example of the grape with a brilliant and lively color ruby - garnet red.
In the mouth, several tastes appear: violet, sweet spices, floral aromas, with a dry, velvety flavor and balanced tannins.
Ideal to be drunk with red meat and cheese
The artisan who made it
Pietro Balocco decided to start bottling his own wine, the family had been growing and selling grapes for more than a century, only recently and now Federico, the young and talented son/wine maker, has decided to take the Collina San Ponzio winery where it really belongs, amongst the top Piedmont producers. Their Nebbiolo vineyards used in the production of the Barolo, are located in La Morra, one of the best areas for Barolo, but also grow other Piedmont native grapes such as Barbera, Dolcetto, Roero and Favorita that then bottle.
