The ultimate fireside companion.
It’s rare to see Vespolina on its own, as it’s typically blended with Nebbiolo and Croatina in the Piedmonte region. The organic vines were harvested by hand and vinified with native yeasts. This expression from Colombera & Garella is powerful like a Nebbiolo, yet has plenty of floral and mineral tones, with all the right kind of tannin.
- Christiano Garella and his long-time friend, Giacomo Colombera are the dynamic force behind this wine, and are devoted to revitalizing the terroirs of the region.
- The acidic natures of the soils here produce lower alcohol wines that are very different from the neighboring wines of Barolo and Barbaresco.
- The region of Alto Piemonte sits above Barolo and Barbaresco at the foot of the alps, and was nearly abandoned prior to being revitalized by winemakers like Christiano and Giacomo.
