The only thing that differentiates Langhe Nebbiolo from the better-known and more prestigious Barolo and Barbaresco are a few kilometers, sometimes meters, away: in fact, the grapes for this wine are grown in the lands surrounding the Barolo DOCG. It follows that Langhe Nebbiolo is certainly an excellent wine made from soils with a great viticultural vocation.
Giovanni and Mattia manually manage the soils that will give rise to Langhe Nebbiolo, without the use of herbicides and at an elevation of about 400 meters above sea level, in the commune of La Morra. Fermentation, in steel barrels and at a controlled temperature, precedes maceration for 10 days and aging, which takes place first in small 3rd- and 4th-passage wooden barrels, then in steel casks and then in the bottle. The use of now almost exhausted barriques is a well-considered choice by Giovanni and Mattia, designed to leave intact and prevalent the aromas of the wonderful grape variety that is Nebbiolo.
Langhe Nebbiolo is the wine for those who love meat in all its facets: game, roasts, meat sauces and even grilled meat, this extraordinary grape variety seems born to accompany these flavors. Try it also with a board of medium-aged cheeses.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away!
It is clear that wine is not harmful to our bodies, as a substance given to us by nature in the form of fruit from which man over the centuries has managed to obtain this heavenly beverage. We can guarantee that our winemakers work by following ancient methods, supported by the aid of contemporary technologies: this is why we feel confident in affirming that Italian wine, the real one, is a panacea for body and mind.
The presence of polyphenols in wine (to a lesser extent in white wines and in large quantities in reds, especially when aged) provides constant protection against cellular oxidation, the main culprit of aging and cellular deterioration.
Perhaps even more obvious and important, however, are the psychological benefits that a good glass of Italian wine can give you: the lightheartedness it gives to an evening with friends, the romance it helps to create in a couple’s dinner, the passion it is able to unleash in anyone lucky enough to taste its essences.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
