Technically speaking, the Canavese is part of Piedmont. Its location at the frontier of the Valle d’Aosta, the very edge of Piedmont, an area renowned for its steeply terraced vineyards, imparts a distinctive quality to the wines.The red grape of Piedmont is of course Nebbiolo which is used to make the wonderful Barolo and Barbaresco. This coming from a lesser known region means you are getting incredible bang for your Nebbiolo.
This wine is a beauty as it exudes finesse and elegance at a fraction of the price of most Barolo and Barbaresco. Bright cherry, raspberry and floral notes with mineral and hints of earthiness on the finish.
