Vincenzo Bossotti produces this wine from his vineyards in the Langhe wine-region. Here he grows his Nebbiolo for producing the Vialunga wine. In comparison with many other Langhe Nebbiolo, this wine puts aside some of Nebbiolo sharp tastes, in favour of more round, mouthful and rich taste.
The nose of this wine is characterised by a floral perfume or roses and spicy notes. In the mouth this wine preserves all the elegance, depth and complexity of the Nebbiolo grape. The finish is intense and dry. red wine from the newly established DOCG Terre Alfieri in Piemonte. Ruby red with orange reflections. On the nose is fresh with notes of cherry and plums. Full taste balanced by the good freshness make this wine easy to drink despite its good complexity. Well balanced tannins and persistent finish.
The Bossotti family
Vincenzo and Giovanna, together with their children Cristina, her husband Davide, have been making wine in this wine amphitheatre since 2000.
The small winery is in Cisterna d’Asti, a small village that is 375 metres above sea level, in the province of Asti on the border of the province of Cuneo. Vincenzo vineyards cover a surface of about 9 hectares in the newly established Terre Alfieri DOCG. They all grown on ideal steep hills with traditional varieties: Nebbiolo, Barbera, Arneis and the indigenous grape Croatina. The vineyards’ soil is mostly made up of sandstone, sedimentary rocks of marine origin mixed with limestone, clay and sand, which results in a soft permeable soil. The latest technical developments are implanted in the vineyards respecting the traditional manner, using methods that have a minimal impact on the environment.
