MED-LIGHT-BODIED, ROSE PETALS, VIOLET, RIPE RED FRUIT, SMOKE, SPICE, OAKThis fragrant, textbook nebbiolo from a small family farm (est. 1851) in the heart of the Roero is essentially a declassified, youthful Barolo. The estate has adopted organic methods and uses natural fertilizers and no herbicides; wine is from 30 year old vines and aged on average for six months in barrique, and two months in bottle before release. A joy on it’s own, but can also stand up to food!

Tullia is another of our all-time favorite dry-yet-fruity affordable bubbles! Straw yellow in color, with an intensely fruity and fresh bouquet reminiscent of spear wood flowers, wisteria, wild apple, and mountain honey, plus a fine and persistent perlage... honestly, what’s not to love about it?
