The Nebbiolo d'Alba San Pietro DOC by Cravanzola is an authentic expression of Piedmont, contained in every glass. Obtained from the prized Nebbiolo grape aged in wood, thus enhancing its olfactory and gustatory qualities. On the nose, nuances of ripe red fruit and a touch of spice emerge, while the palate is enveloped by a rich and vigorous flavour, fruity with a present but very soft tannin. It is the ideal companion for meat-based dishes or for unforgettable evenings in good company.

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.
