Description

Ferdinando Principiano is one of the new crop of exciting young winegrowers to farm Piedmont’s Langhe hills. He graduated from Alba’s Scuola Viticole Umberto I in 1993, joining his father Ameri-co at the Monforte D’Alba domaine following an apprenticeship at both Giacomo Conterno & Roberto Voerzio; the best of both worlds you could say. The former drove his determination to produce a pure and balanced style of Barolo, persuading him that nurturing the vineyard soil and rejecting the use of artificial fertilisers and pesticides gives the correct conditions for the vine to thrive in. Voerzio taught him tradition for its’ own sake does not necessarily give you the best results. The precipitous slope of the Ravera di Monforte Cru lies at the southern tip of Barolo. Take one step away from the foot of the slope and you have left DOCG Barolo. This facing hill is where Ferdinand has his inherit-ed Le Coste vineyards in the Langhe DOC.

TASTING NOTES
Vibrant and delicious Nebbiolo. Saturated with black cherry and warm mountain rocks, whiffs of liquorice and black raspberry. Open-armed tannins and welcome grip and definition

FOOD PAIRING

Ribeye or prime rib are particularly well suited to this wine, as are sausages, duck, and pork shank. When it comes to vegetables and sauces, think Italian! Nebbiolo goes well with a number of regional dishes that include tomato-based sauces, garlic, olives, pizza, and butternut squash.
