This wine presents an elegant and fruit-forward bouquet, blending red berries with the earthiness of the forest floor, a dash of spices, and an intriguing hint of sardines. While it may appear restrained, there's an undeniable charm to its aromatic profile. The wine's good acidity adds to its freshness, making it quite appealing. The tannins are a bit dry, bordering on harsh, yet this characteristic doesn't detract from the wine's overall enjoyability.

Cascina Piccaluga di Abellonio Roberto

Cascina Piccaluga, which means "pick the grapes" in the Ligurian dialect, was established in the late 1800s when a doctor from Genoa bought land in Altavilla, on a hill between Treiso and Barbaresco, and built a farm on it. In the early 20th century, Carlo Abellonio, who was initially a manager and later became the owner, planted the first Dolcetto and Nebbiolo vineyards. In 1996, Roberto Abellonio took over the business, significantly improving it by expanding the planting areas, production, and variety of cultivated grapes and wines. Currently, Cascina Piccaluga has approximately 10 hectares of vineyards, primarily located in Alba-in-Altavilla, Treiso, Barbaresco, and Santo Stefano Belbo.
