The Nebbiolo grape is the king of piemontese grape varieties. This wine is dedicated to Alfonso,in piemontese dialect “Funsu”, Angelo’s father who was an honest farmer and faithful to hisland.
The wine is ruby red with garnet shades, typical of the Nebbiolo grape. The nose is floral and fruity, rich in scents reminiscent of violet and rose. The light tannins show themselves in the mouth in a delicate and elegant way. The balance and harmony make this Nebbiolo rather easy-drinking and invite you to another glass.
Perfect with typical piemontese antipasti such as raw meat (tartare or albese), veal with tuna sauce and insalata russa. Excellent with aged cheese, red meat (grilled or spiced) and with wild game.
