Nebbiolo d’Alba Superiore Cianin da Stiva is certainly a characteristic DOC wine from the province of Cuneo.
This selection comes from the assembly of Nebbiolo grapes grown in the heart of the production area. These are soils with a strong siliceous component which gives the resulting wines great aromas and great elegance.
In conclusion Nebbiolo is a great wine, the pride of the Roero area that stands out for its finesse and elegance. It is one of the oldest black grape varieties in Piedmont.
Probably, the name derives from nebbia (fog) because it ripen late and the harvest starts meanwhile the autumn mists rose.
As it ages, the wine take on a characteristic brick-orange hue at the rim of the glass and mature to reveal other aromas and flavors such as violets, tar, wild herbs, cherries, raspberries, truffles, tobacco, and prunes. Nebbiolo wines can require years of aging to balance the tannins with other characteristics: like our Cianin da Stiva.
