The bouquet is intense and expansive, with fruity and flowery notes enhancing the vinous and ethereal nuances and sweet spices, which become more marked with the passing of time.
On the mouth it is full-bodied and soft, with delicate tannins.
Langhe Nebbiolo lends itself to moderate ageing in the bottle, and with its potential for development and good structure it goes well with starters such as tagliatelle with ragout and risotto with Castelmagno cheese, and with roast and char-grilled meats.
