NEBBIOLO D'ALBA DOC OCCHETTI
NEBBIOLO D’ALBA D.O.C. OCCHETTI ®
It comes from Cascina Occhetti’s vineyards with westerly exposure. The grapes are gathered when the first fall fogs appear in these valleys; in cellar, after the wine-growing, the refining in vat in barrel and in bottle allows to find its better harmony after two years at least.
Colour: lively ruby-red deep tending to garnet-red in the long run.
Perfume: soft and delicate, with raspberry and violet scent, accentuating and improving by ageing.
Flavour: dry, full-bodied, properly tannic when young, then velvety and harmonic.
Alcoholic strength: ± 14 degrees.
Aging period: the wine after a long traditional fermentation, is aged 24 months in oak barrels.
Gastronomic coupling: refined wine, it is a proper accompaniment to aristocratic dishes, such as fondue, venison and not too strong cheeses. To be served at 18°C.
