Unlike traditional wood vinification, steel preserves the authenticity and freshness of the Nebbiolo grapes, enhancing their primary characteristics. On the nose, the wine offers a bouquet of red fruits, flowers, and spices, with a hint of minerality that is almost crystalline in its purity. On the palate, its structure is elegant and well-balanced, with soft tannins that blend into a long and persistent finish. This wine is perfect for those looking for a Nebbiolo in a younger and more dynamic guise, without sacrificing the complexity and depth that distinguish this variety. Ideal for pairing with white meats,pasta, pizza, fresh cheeses, or as a meditation wine.

The Cravanzola company was founded by Carlo Annibale Cravanzola in 1930 and, to this day, the new generations carry on his passion with the same enthusiasm and with the same precision. Immersed in the historic heart of the village of Castellinado d'Alba, the Schiavenza winery is equipped with cutting-edge technologies for the production and aging of wine. The Roero area is a place of dense and interconnected hills where the vine dominates the sunniest slopes, with exposures to the south, east and west. This land has an ancient and rich history which leaves traces of castles, towers, churches and ancient villages. The soil, made up of layers of sand mixed with calcareous and clayey marls, is perfect for the production of fruity wines thanks to the alternation of clouds and sun during the harvest season. The vineyards of the Cravanzola winery extend among the surrounding hills, with different positions and exposures, which offer ideal conditions for the cultivation of different grape varieties, producing every year high quality wines with original and well-defined properties.
