Winemaking Notes: Harvest is done by hand. Grapes are softly pressed. The Nebbiolo ferments and matures in stainless steel for a beautiful freshness. The skins stay in contact with the must for about 18-20 days. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. The Langhe Nebbiolo is not filtered or fined. Total sulfites (free and added) equal 35 mg/l.

Tasting Notes: Cascina delle Rose's Langhe Nebbiolo shows elegant floral notes with hints of rose and violet, which is typical of Tre Stelle. It has a dense texture of fine and silky tannins. It has great refinement and persistence. This wine pairs well with many meats and cheeses.

    The 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo is a delicate red wine laced with wild berries, lavender and blue violets. This wine wraps over the palate with silky intensity and smooth texture. There is ample brightness and harmony here.
