2019 Platinetti Colline Novaresi Nebbiolo
Colline Novaresi, Piemonte
Produced using a selection of Nebbiolo grapes from the Ronco Maso vineyard which is never harvested before the second half of September.
After crushing, the grapes are left to macerate for up to 8 days to maximize the extraction of colour and tannins from the skins.
Vinification continues in large Slavonian oak barrels for almost a year before being completed with bottle aging for at least 6 months.
With aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry, jams and a slight hint of appassimento, the palate is essential, well-rounded and harmonious, thanks to its firm but mature and captivating tannins.
This is a delicate wine, which is much influenced by the weather, and this lends each vintage its own distinctive character.
