• 6 bottle of 2019 Cascina Chicco Nebbiolo Langhe DOC

A fresh and clean version of Nebbiolo. A wine that expresses all the straightforward scents of this grape variety, without sacrificing in structure. The body is slender with a good tannic and acidic personality which allows this wine to vary in serving temperature, making it easy to pair with different dishes.

The Nebbiolo grapes are sourced in the countryside of Castagnito, in a particular hill named Costa which is mentioned in ancient documents. The average age of the vineyards is 20 years and this area is particularly suited for the production of this fine and elegant wine. The yield per hectare is very low, allowing us to obtain a Langhe Nebbiolo of the highest quality.

What I love most about this wine is that it represents what Nebbiolo from Langhe could be: a fresh and easy to drink wine. Today’s trend is moving towards the creation of “Mini-Barolo” in the appellations Langhe Nebbiolo but Cascina Chicco still loves to make a nice juicy style of pure Nebbiolo grape, perfect to drink every day accompanied by  nice antipasto or pasta dishes.
