Nebbiolo Langhe "La Chiusa" DOC - Chionetti

La Chiusa, Langhe DOC Nebbiolo proposed here by Chionetti, comes from a pure processing of Nebbiolo grapes that come for the most part from the area of San Luigi, in the municipality of Dogliani. The rest, however, comes from the company's vineyards in Monforte d'Alba. The grapes are harvested by hand between October and November, just before the arrival of winter. Vinification is traditional and is followed by a period of refinement in the cellar before bottling. In this case, the producer's choice is a large barrel of untoasted French oak, which yields little in terms of aromas and fragrances but still allows the wine to evolve and acquire pleasantness and a nice drinkability. Unfiltered, it is a fine traditional red, characterised by a ruby colour with a slight opalescence. On the nose it has fruity, floral and herbaceous scents, while in the mouth it reveals a nice elegance and the right freshness. Perfect with beef, chicken and pork dishes, this Langhe DOC also accompanies simple sliced meats and medium-aged cheeses.
