Aldo-Conterno-Il-Favot-Langhe-Nebbiolo-2015

Aldo Conterno, Langhe Nebbiolo ''Il Favot'', 2015

CELLAR REFINING: the new wine, after spending a few months in stainless steel vats and being transferred several times, is put in oak casks, where it remains a few months and, finally, it will be bottled.

NOTES: the grapes used to make “ Il Favot” come from vineyards which have undergone periodical implantations, and so have a maximum age of 15 years. The skin contact is limited to 6-8 days so to extract few tannins and more colour from the skins themselves, with the result of getting a well-coloured wine with a remarkable softness.

2015 has turned out to be an outstanding vintage so this bottling will provide delicious drinking for several years into the future. It’s limited so take advantage while we have stock.
