Cascina Preziosa Nebbiolo 'Castleng' Coste Della Sesia 2014
Hailing from the hills of Castellengo, this gorgeously perfumed 100% Nebbiolo is as racy as it is refined. Southwestern exposure and high altitudes allow grapes to reach optimum balance; elevage in large barrels gives the wine an added weightiness. Pair robust savory beef dishes.
This tartly tannic, headily fragrant, beguilingly complex king of Italian red grapes is brimming with bright fruit and earthy funk -- in versions ranging from explosive (Barolo) to ethereal (Valtellina).
