Deep raspberry, blackberry, and rose scents, with an enchanting ruby red color, Langhe Nebbiolo is well combined with spicy sensations. The soft and enveloping tannic sensation is balanced and features a good potential, contributing to a captivating harmonious palate. Due to its pleasant character, it is easy to pair with many foods and enjoyed throughout the whole meal. We recommend white meat, chicken, and medium – aged cheese. Its tannic finesse also makes it good with fish stew or soup and spicy dishes.
This red wine is made entirely from nebbiolo grapes following a traditional vinification style and a refinement period of around one year in large Slavonian oak barrels.
This is the manifesto of sustainable viticulture, constantly applied by Rocche Costamagna in the last twenty years: ‘To Valorize native vine varieties, know the plots, rows, soils, and microclimates well. To know how to adapt techniques and operations to the real needs of the plants, respecting their natural balance and bringing the fruit to full maturation without stressing or forcing the rhythms of nature. That is to say, to apply the utmost care and attention to limit the number of treatments in the vineyards with the long-term goal of conserving the viticultural heritage diffused in the physical and cultural landscape of the Langhe. This is the manifesto of sustainable viticulture, constantly applied by Rocche Costamagna in the last twenty years.’
The vineyards are carefully managed and worked with timely dedication throughout the year, to reduce the risk of plant illness and limit the need for mechanical interventions.
Rocche Costamagna employs careful thinning of the leaves, concentrating on obtaining a few high-quality, well-matured grape clusters. The vines, for the most part, were replanted in the ‘90s, after careful analysis of the terroir and the pedological characteristics of each soil. A rational approach was taken in the preparation and choice of vines and rootstocks, whose goal was consistent high-quality production without compromise.
In order to be able to ensure the vitality of their vines for many years, they plant grass between the rows, avoiding the use of machinery that would alter the structure of the soils, impoverish the soils, and lead to surface erosion.
Rocche Costamagna been following for many years the principles of sustainable agriculture, eliminating the practice of weeding between the rows, and the applied use of copper, sulfur, and other natural inductors of resistance.
