2020 'Favolalunga' Colline Novaresi Vespolina DOC

Case of 6 bottles

Varietals: 100% Vespolina

Vinification/Ageing: Hand picking vintage in crates during the last week of September, destemming and gentle mashing, fermentation in steel barrels, soaking for about 10 days. Malolactic fermentation in steel with indigenous yeast. Rests in steel barrels for the first 6 months of the year subsequent to vintage and in bottles for 4 months after bottling. No fining, coarse filtration prior to bottling.

Alcohol: 13%

Tasting Note: Medium red, not that different in color from Nebbiolo, of which it is a relative; spicy aroma and flavour (cinnamon, black pepper), cedar/sandalwood, red-fruited, mid-weight, really useful table wine.
