Langhe Nebbiolo DOC Bricot 2016

Tasting notes

This ruby-red wine tends to become orangey color with aging.

Its scent is characteristic, with delicate fruity and floral hints. The taste is dry, at times amiablevelvety, with good body.

It goes well with traditional Piedmont dishes, like stuffed pasta, roasts, boiled meats and cheeses.
