Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC is an exceptional Piedmontese red wine and a great alternative to the more expensive Barolos. Brick red in colour with a bouquet of blackberries, vanilla, and spices, Nebbiolo d‘Alba DOC by Cantina Moscone is fairly dry with chewy tannins and a warm, long-lasting finish preceded by flavours of berries, plums, and leather. Pair with game, red meat, and mature, hard cheese. To appreciate the full flavours and complexity of this Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC we recommend decanting 30-60 minutes before drinking. Drink now to 2029.
Cantina Moscone harvests their grapes by hand. A 20 days maceration period then takes place before the must is fermented. The wine ages for 12 months in oak barrels before refining for another year in steel tanks.

Nebbiolo is a traditional Italian grape grown almost exclusively in Piedmont and some parts of northern Lombardy. Nebbiolo grapes ripen late and are harvested in the Autumn when thick fogs cover the vineyards of Piedmont, hence the name Nebbiolo (nebbia is the Italian word for fog). Notoriously difficult to grow, Nebbiolo wines tend to be medium to full-bodied with chewy tannins and high acidity. Its natural characteristics make Nebbiolo wines ideal for ageing. When young, Nebbiolo wines tend to have aromas of plum, cherry, and strawberry. As Nebbiolo wines age they develop the classic tar and rose characteristics they are famous for.
