Antoniolo Coste Della Sesia “Juvenia” Nebbiolo 2017
*A “young” style Nebbiolo from the most northern part of Piedmont, Italy. Produced with organic and sustainable farming practices, it has the hallmarks of the Nebbiolo grape with a fragrant red cherry aroma, red plum, sweet spices, earth, mushroom, and roses. Light-bodied, but with nice and firm tannins on the palate, the flavors of crushed stone, sweet flowers, black cherry, truffles, and dried leather initially come through; then in the second half the wine expresses the volcanic soil of the region with notes of ash, black smoke, volcanic rocks, and fresh acidity in the finish. The volcanic soil of the region adds a different layer to Nebbiolo, so we highly recommend exploring this wine for something different*
