A harmonious Nebbiolo with fruity and spicy aromas and good drinking flow.
The grapes for Deltetto Langhe Nebbiolo I Lioni 2019 DOC come from a vineyard called I Lioni, located in a small hamlet of the same name and which was formerly also the seat of the Deltetto winery.
The Nebbiolo berries are harvested by hand in the second half of October and then fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel barrels. The aging then takes place in large oak barrels and lasts a year. After a short period of bottle storage, the wine is then sold.
Deltetto Langhe Nebbiolo I Lioni 2019 DOC is characterized by its typical garnet color, its spicy and fruity notes, as well as its elegance and harmony. It goes very well with pasta, poultry or as an aperitif. The wine is ready to drink immediately and for the next ten years.
The producer: Deltetto
Carlo Deltetto took over the management of the winery from his father Tonino a few years ago. As has become a tradition in Piedmont, Carlo is also supported by the entire family. His parents and his two sisters hold important positions in the winery.
Founded in 1953 by Carlo Deltetto, the grandfather of the current owner, the winery is located in the heart of the municipality of Canale. Over the decades that followed, the business grew steadily and today, Deltetto is an established name in the region.
Deltetto has earned a reputation for producing high quality white wines, dry sparkling wines and autochthonous red wines. The Roero Arneis grape variety is widespread in the Canale area due to the nature of the soil, and the white wines are made from this grape variety the flagship of the winery. Incidentally, Roero Arneis is one of the few wines whose taste is not felt on the tongue but only on the palate. The Nebbiolo has also found a home in the Roero area and Carlo Deltetto produces a Barolo Parussi single-vineyard wine as well as a Nebbiolo D'Alba and the Roero wine, which can only be found in this area. The Deltetto winery practices organic viticulture.
