"Valmaggiore" Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC - Orlando Abrigo

Nebbiolo is a very demanding grape in terms of soil and exposure. It grows well where the soil is poor and the exposure is optimal. In the hills, of course, it gives its best. Even if here, often, a surplus of effort is required because the slopes are generally not well suited to mechanization. You have to do everything by hand. From the care to the harvest. But it's usually worth it. You are richly rewarded from the first sip. A fine example is this Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore, proposed by Abrigo Orlando. Malolactic fermentation in 500-liter tonneaux and refinement in oak barrels, Valmaggiore appears in the glass with a beautiful ruby, not particularly intense, color. The nose reveals itself to be a wine of great finesse, with notes ranging from rose and spice to ripe, juicy berries. In the mouth it is fine and ample, smooth, savory and mineral, with an elegant final persistence and excellent drinkability.

The Abrigo family is one of the many families of the Langa dedicated to wine for generations. A family in which traditions are handed down from father to son and where each generation has the task of safeguarding what has been done, improving it where possible, but above all making sure that the family business always keeps up with the times. So when in 1988 Giovanni Abrigo began to collaborate with his father, his first thought was to improve the technological aspect and to enlarge the company surface with the purchase of lands and vineyards. Today the farm directly manages about 20 hectares of vineyards. And its wines receive international awards and recognition.

    This is a popular and versatile red wine that could pair with pasta, steak or chicken. The Orlando Abrigo 2017 Nebbiolo d'Alba Vigna Valmaggiore Tutto A Mano is a wine of wide latitude and versatility. This is a dark and moderately concentrated expression of Nebbiolo with the fruity concentration, freshness and structure to pair with your favorite home-cooked foods. The steep and difficult to farm Valmaggiore vineyard in Roero is producing some of the most attractive and accessible Nebbiolo on the market today. This hot vintage offers a touch of ripe cherry or dried raspberry.

    Lots of clear, ripe fruit here with light strawberry jam and fresh flowers that open to a full body with round, juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Really delicious, in a fruit-forward way. Drink now.
