Roberto Voerzio Langhe Nebbiolo Disanfrancesco
Roberto Voerzio is a winemaker renowned throughout the industry, both for producing exquisite wines, and for an attention to detail it would be difficult to surpass. In his scrupulous and skillful hands, his 2014 Langhe Nebbiolo takes the old-fashioned high-tannin style of the varietal and turns it on its head. The result is a complex amalgamation of floral, citrus, fruit and spice that competes favourably with the vast majority of Barolos, rather than with a traditional Nebbiolo. With only 650 dozen made each year, its a distinctive Nebbiolo at an extremely attractive price, from a producer hailed as ...one of the worlds most talented and passionate winemakers at work today - and one we encourage you to explore.

Elio Grasso Langhe Nebbiolo Gavarini
Elio Grassos Langhe Nebbiolo is a contemporary expression of Nebbiolo designed to create a more approachable style for drinking over the first 5 years of its life. The fruit comes from a south-facing 1.2 ha plot of slightly younger vines within the Gavarini vineyard, 350-380 meters above sea level, on relatively loose-packed, calcareous soil. Driven by rigorous attention to detail in the vineyard and picking at optimum phenolic maturity, the Grasso style is underscored by immaculate winemaking. The Langhe Nebbiolo is fermented in stainless steel and typically spends 20 days on skins, followed by 6-8 months maturation in stainless steel tanks. Micro-oxygenation is used judiciously for a softer mouthfeel.
