Nebbiolo might rule in Piedmont, but it is not the only king. 

In this area, Nebbiolo takes on a different expression. Soils are rocky and clay based and can often retain a lot of heat. In turn, certain zones can offer wines that are powerful, yet restrained at the same time. 

100% Nebbiolo (AKA chiavennasca), this red sees long skin contact and refinement in barrel, cement and then into bottle. Don't expect extraction or density, this wine is floral, delicate and bright.
