Villa Mercante is a wine produced with 100% Prunent grapes, an ancient clone of Nebbiolo whose origins are certified since 1309. They come from a single vineyard in the municipality of Trontano, in Ossola considered the cradle of the origin of Nebbiolo. A wine with unique characteristics that reflect the uniqueness of this rugged and wild land. Garnet red color, complex bouquet with hints of undergrowth and vanilla, in the mouth full and mineral with pronounced tannins.
Aging takes place first in oak barrels for 12 months and then in the bottle.
This wine with great aging potential is ideal as an accompaniment to an important cuisine with rich aromas and flavors.

"The 2015 Maggiorina is a crazy blend of more than 13 different grape varieties harvested from 25 separate vineyard sites. Leading roles are taken by the Nebbiolo, Croatina and Vespolina grapes, but there are white and aromatic varieties in there as well. This is a youthful and easy-drinking red wine that is buoyant and carefree in spirit. The wine is made in stainless steel with a brief maceration period. It's a simple and refreshing wine, but it is not banal. Drink it within the next two years. Christoph Künzli is a man of infectious charisma and joyful optimism. I highly recommend a visit to his little tasting room on the main square in the town of Boca. He also produces some of the finest wines you will find in Alto Piemonte. This high-performing winery is a true treasure not only for Piedmont but for Italian wine in general." -Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Powerfully built, this opens with a potpourri of aromas including pressed rose, violet, mature berry, baking spice and a whiff of leather. Dried black cherry, licorice, pipe tobacco, nutmeg and a balsamic note wrap around the gripping palate alongside a backbone of ripe, assertive tannins. Hold for even more complexity.
A juicy luscious and complex core of raspberry, boysenberry and mulled currant fruit. The palate has a solid acidity and ripe dark fruit, completed by Nebbiolo length and elegance. Pair with grilled red meat and strong cheeses.

Aldo Conterno’s Barolo Bussia is produced from five hectares of prime vineyards in Bussia Soprano, the original section of what has become a rather large vineyard in recent years. These five hectares are spread across three separate parcels with vines averaging 35-40 years old, with no vines younger than 20 years old.
Variety: 100% Nebbiolo
The Barolo D.O.C.G. CAROBRIC® was born in 1996 as a combination of three historical and complex terroir. The Barolo CAROBRIC® personality is about focus, precision of elements, intensity and length. The aromatics are lifted with a beautiful tension and clarity. As per all our Barolo, we pursue the purest expression of terroir. Therefore vinification and aging are all the same to underline specific expression of the vineyard.
While Vallana’s wines have proven over the decades that they can be just as rich, velvet-textured and long-lived as the greatest Barolos and Barbarescos, their overall character is strikingly different from that of the Langhe wines.
Alto Piemonte lies at the foothills of the Alps where the warm Mediterranean and temperate Continental climates of Europe meet. The cooling flow of air through the alpine valleys and the presence of large lakes creates moderate conditions that are ideal for Spanna.
Of particular importance are the wide daily temperature swings during the latter part of the growing season, creating great complexity through slow, even maturation of the fruit.
The climate and high altitude, coupled with glacially deposited soils that are naturally high in acidity produces Nebbiolo of haunting perfume, great elegance and unusually long life.
Fratelli Cigliuti dates back to a time when Renato's father and his brother sold grapes and wine in bulk to local private customers. In 1964 Renato Cigliuti, the current owner & winemaker, inherited the estate and was the first to bottle his family's wine. The estate remains family owned and run, now into its fifth generation with daughters Claudia and Silvia. We produce approximately 30,000 bottles from our own vineyards of 6.5 hectares.
Nebbiolo is an elegant variety with mouthwatering acidity and a compelling perfume of rose petals, violets, fresh tar, licorice, clay, and dried cherries. Light in color and body, Nebbiolo is a more powerful wine than one might expect, and its firm tannins typically need time to mellow. With age, it develops a velvety texture and a stunningly complex bouquet.
