Description

Details

Costa Bassa Fay has a superbly vibrant colour entices you in and leads to a complex nose of fruits and flowers; dog rose and raspberries with touches of spice. The palate is smooth and fresh with an abundance of forest fruit flavours and a warm lengthy finish. The Nebbiolo (called Chiavennasca) here gives fresh, elegant wine, dry with medium body, garnet coloured with soft tanins!
Nebbiolo is usually associated with the mighty Barolos of Piedmonte but try this superb wine as an alternative. Piemonte nebbiolos are typically more concentrated than Chianvennasca, although the different microclimates in both Valtellina and Lombardia provide different representations of the grape and one that should not be missed.
