Cantina Delsignore Spanna La Crotta 2018

While the fundamental aromas and flavors have a definite Nebbiolo character, the structure

tends to be almost Burgundian, slightly rustic, with beautiful dried herbs and flowers on the nose

and unmistakable stony, cool character gleaned from the cooler alpine influence and the soils of

volcanic origin – mostly rocky on a base of granite and porphyry, rich in minerals, particularly

iron with a high acidic ph.

The result of all this is a truly delicious wine that you will want to go back to for a second glass!

Medium ruby with slight amber edges, beautiful aromas of dried flowers, herbs and cherry

notes, elegant and fine on the palate, warm, medium bodied and with lovely delineation, warm

dried cherry fruit, and a stony, mineral undertone. This is a picture perfect summer red with

pasta, pizza and all kinds of Italian cuisine, but also with just about any meat on the grill from

chicken to pork to lamb and beef.
