Sommelier-selected wine, paired with life.

Nada Giuseppe Casot Barbaresco

A tidbit about the grape(s)/wine style

The Nebbiolo grape can make a wine of seemingly full of contradictions: delicate cherry, raspberry and rose notes met by leather, tar and anise, with a light-bodied palate awakened with high acid and robust, grippy tannis. It's the sole grape of famed Barolo and Barbaresco wines, the latter requiring slightly less, yet still significant, barrel aging prior to release.
