Valli Ossolane DOC Nebbiolo Prünent is the original wine of Ossola valley. The presence of this Prunent Nebbiolo in Ossola was first documented in 1309. Prunent is a clone of Nebbiolo, well adapted for the northern mountain vineyards. It is a rare version of Nebbiolo, found primarily in Alto Piemonte.
Since 1920, Cantine Garrone, has been protecting its treasured vineyards like the guardian of the fortress. In fact, they managed to save many traditional vines from the spread of phylloxera (a parasite of the vines). Precisely for this reason, this wine comes from ancient vineyards, including centuries-old "a piede franco" plants, plants that escaped the threat of phylloxera.
This wine earns the title Superiore after it has spent at least 10 months in oak barrels, where it goes through malolactic fermentation.
The color is ruby with hints of garnet and has complex aromas of roses & vanilla.
Its good structure and dry savory tannins leave a pleasant, slightly persistent aftertaste in the mouth.
Valli Ossolane DOC Nebbiolo "Prünent" pairs well with hearty main dishes of meat, wild game, tomato-based vegetable dishes, and slightly matured cheeses. It goes particularly well with mushroom and grilled flavors.
