Red Wine from Piedmont, Italy
The best expression of the Piedmont region, this Nebbiolo is garnet-red in color, and shows an incredible variety of aromas due to the grape’s natural characteristics and long aging period. Velvety, with great structure and big tannins, that smooth out during the aging process. “Simposio” refers to a “meeting” (blending) of grapes from different vineyards close to the winery. Vineyards are all located in the west side of the Barolo area (Verduno, La Morra and Novello)..
