This beautiful wine, produced by Gigi Rosso, hails from the Alba area of the Piemonte region in Italy. It is a beautiful wine that leaves a lasting impression on all who taste it thanks to the usage of the wonderful - and understated - Nebbiolo grape used in this wine. It is tannic, though not as tannic as related grape varieties. What gives this grape uniqueness are the strong aromas and palate of dark fruit notes and spices.
This wine is quite tannic and acidic. It is a very refreshing wine with bold flavors and leans towards the drier side. It also presents a medium finish. To the eye: dark red with hues of purple. On the nose: thoughts of rose and anise present themselves here. On the palate: red fruits such as cherries and raspberries are noticeable with thoughts of oak and nutmeg.
This is a very bold wine that pairs excellently with steak and strong red sauces. A recommendation would be spezzatino di manzo (Italian beef stew). This beautiful stew uses chuck or brisket, pancetta, carrots, celery, onions, garlic, white wine, tomatoes, rosemary, sage, parsley, and capers. This hearty stew presents strong beef flavors that would compliment this wine perfectly.
