SIRE Langhe Nebbiolo DOC

Nebbiolo, one of the most sought-after grape varietals in the world, reigns in the wine-growing areas of Alba. The name, Sire, signifying a great ruler or king, is a tribute to the noble qualities this Nebbiolo has to offer. Monchiero Carbone works vigorously to harvest the Nebbiolo grapes grown on the rolling hills of the Roero; the estate strives to cultivate grapes with perfect aromas and structure in order to produce a wine that is capable of expressing the notable characteristics of this great varietal. Sire is a testament to the power behind this noble interpretation of a classic Piedmontese wine. From younger vines on the southwestern hillsides of the vineyards in Canale, these Nebbiolo grapes are fermented following the classic Piedmontese 15-day maceration period. This wine is noted for its all-around finesse, merging varietal aromas of black raspberry and roses with undertones of nutmeg. Best paired with pasta dishes and meat sauces, it is an approachable and versatile Nebbiolo wine.
