A slightly faded ruby red. Fine, delicate and persistent bouquet with characteristic trace scents of strawberry and raspberry. Pleasantly bitterish, velvety, at once elegant and full. Class and spontaneous vivacity are the distinguishing characteristics of this wine. The typical sandy soil gives lots of finesse and a very delicate aromas.
Pair with red meats, grilled or on the spit, game, grande cuisine white and red meats with white or brown sauces.

Intense nose of dried lavender, raspberry coulis, tamarind and spice box. Round and generous on the palate with a layered approach to the blue fruit and tangy acidity to boot. Always a top nebbiolo. Drink now.

This is a delightfully fresh and buoyant red wine with lots of dark fruit definition. The fruit for the 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo Ochetti comes from the Roero zone and its light, sandy soils. Here, you get the delicate berry tones of Nebbiolo with a bit more heft and heat from the warm vintage.
