Light ruby colour with aromas of ripe cherry, rose, spice and red fruit. On the palate there’s red berries, red fruits, with hints of floral notes and a slightly spicy finish. Elegant body which is on the lighter side for Nebbiolo but with great balance and finesse.

Located on the southern fringe of the Barolo zone the Principiano estate benefits from the biodiversity of the Alta Langhe; the wilderness that lies beyond the dense planting of Nebbiolo vineyards. This helps in maintaining a biodiverse balance in the vineyard. In 2003 Ferdinando made the decision to move away from conventional winemaking and has been rewarded by the purity and drinkability of his wines.
The Nebbiolo grapes are located mainly in Le Coste di Monforte d’Alba with a small percentage of grapes from Boscareto in Serralunga. This delicate Nebbiolo comes from a hectare of forty-year old vines exposed grown at 350 metres on sandy calcareous soils. Fermentation and maceration last from two to three weeks with native yeasts and without added sulphur. Ageing takes place for ten months in stainless steel tank. Bright with raspberries the nose is ethereal, leafy-fresh. There’s loads of crunchy punchy fruit, plenty of rose petal fragrance too.
