La Gironda, Le Nicchie, Barbera D'Asti Superiore
The wine that embodies all our ambitions. Nizza DOCG, the finest expression of our terroir, is grown only in the finest Barbera vineyards.
The production regulations for this wine are very strict indeed. Nizza DOCG can be made in Nizza and 17 neighbouring municipalities; only there, and only in the vineyards that enjoy the best exposure, with extremely limited yields, are the grapes used to make this wine grown. And only from the second year after harvesting and after spending a compulsory length of time ageing in wood and then in the bottle, can that wine be released for sale.
Ruby red with violet highlights, our Le Nicchie has an intense, complex bouquet featuring red berries with sweet notes of vanilla and coffee. It has a full, warm palate, with scents of liquorice and balanced tannins. Important structure and persistent finish.
This wine’s structure allows the most ambitious pairings; Le Nicchie can be reserved for wheels of well-matured cheese or more prestigious steaks, such as Fassona or a nice juicy T-Bone, or delicious braised “Bue Grasso” (fattened ox meat).
