2018 Demarie Nebbiolo Langhe DOC, Piedmont, Italy
Three generations of the Demarie Giovanni family have called the region and the village of Vezza d’Alba home. The family’s hard work, expertise and love of wine making have, since its founding in 1957, carved out 74 acres that yield spot-on examples of the region’s special terroir.
With history reaching into the Middle ages, today the tiny paradise of hills and vineyards is well-known for its sandy terroir that is rich in sea fossil residue. Guyot-trained vines thrive on sunny slopes and alternate with abundant fruit and hazelnut orchards.
