About the wine

A very pretty, delicate and refined wine from Alto-Piemonte. This is a great introductory Nebbiolo with sweet red berry fruit, fresh flowers and orange peel. Light bodied, but plenty of depth and exceptionally good balance.

About the wine

Agamium is Latin for Ghemme, where the vineyards are located. The Nebbiolo grapes for this wine are harvested in October from the vineyards of Carella, Baraggiola and Valera. Upon arrival at the winery they are destemmed and delicately pressed. A short maceration takes place on the skins, then the juice is transferred to stainless steel tanks where is goes through primary fermentation and malolactic. Once complete the wine is transferred to Slavonian oak for 12 months.
