Giovanni Almondo's Nebbiolo Langhe DOC 2022 is a captivating wine that showcases the distinctive characteristics of Nebbiolo. With notes of undergrowth, violets, and a juicy and elegant pulp, this wine exemplifies the winery's commitment to producing accessible and exceptional wines. The dedication to vineyard management and grape cultivation is evident, reflecting a successful approach.
This Nebbiolo wine reveals a delightful combination of rustic and sun-kissed aromas, intertwined with tender raspberries, earthy undertones, and a pleasant presence of almonds, reminiscent of marzipan. On the palate, it offers a velvety and soft texture, accompanied by firm tannins and a characteristic acidity. It emphasizes the harmony between fruitiness, finesse, and complexity.
Pairing well with a range of dishes, including roasted artichokes, lamb chops, Sardinian cheeses, and Norcia cold cuts, this wine also complements both fresh and dried fruits. To fully enjoy its qualities, it is recommended to uncork and let the wine breathe before serving it at a temperature between 16 - 18 °C in a large Ballon glass.
The winery encompasses 18 hectares of vineyards dedicated to growing Arneis and Nebbiolo grapes. Situated in the agricultural areas of Montà in the northern region of Roero, the winery's vineyards, particularly those with mature Arneis vines, contribute to the character and quality of their wines.
