Langhe Nebbiolo, Altare

Langhe Nebbiolo, Altare
  • 100% Nebbiolo from two dedicated vineyard sources: 0.5 hectares on the north facing slope next to the cantina in Annunziata La Morra, and 1 hectare in Monforte, just outside of the Ginestra cru
  • 10-year-old vines
  • Short fermentation-maceration of 3/4 days
  • Aged in used barriques for six months
  • Only 800 cases are produced annually

Since 2006 we heard whispers of a new Altare wine that remained super-top secret. Not that the family hasn’t had new projects: Cerretta, Cannubi, and Unoperuno are all relatively new wines compared to Barolo classico and Arborina. But this particular new wine was rumored to be on the value side of things, and from the most coveted variety that Altare cultivates: Nebbiolo.
