Vespolina DOC is a red wine grape that is planted in northeast Piedmont, typical of our region.
The grape is supposed to be most likely indigenous to this area of Piedmont and recent DNA profiling identified a parent-offspring relationship with Nebbiolo. It is an ancient variety that has traditionally been used with Nebbiolo to add colour, softness and roundness to the wines. This wine is made exclusively with Vespolina grapes grown in their vineyards with the biodynamic method in harmony with nature and tradition.
The colour is intense ruby red colour with purple hues, the taste is very smooth, round and balanced with good persistence, with a pleasantly tangy.
Sweet tannins that give the final toffee and white pepper. The fragrance is intense, fine, elegant and spicy with notes of grapefruit (red fruit jam).
Foodpairing: Best with red or white meat and traditional local dishes.
