Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC Colla

Tasting Notes

Nebbiolo d'Alba d.o.c. CollaTasting notes

A rich and immediate bouquet with hints of violets, raspberries and blackberries with a touch of spices. It is rich and well structured and offers ever increasing sensations of violets and cocoa until the strong and mighty meeting with the tannins, that make the sensations last. Excellent with roast meats, wild fowl, braised meat and cheeses. To be served at 19°C.
