Cerequio is an important vineyard known for its superior terroir, comprised of loose, deep soil. The land gives the vines greater access to water, which favors the production of wines that are more structured, tannic and powerful. Calcareous-clay soil with a low percentage of sand. This 100% Nebbiolo wine is produced from Nebbiolo vines that are over 30 years old and enjoy great ventilation and south-east exposure.
Game, red meat, meat braised in the same wine and mature cheese.
