The Barolo Sottocastello di Novello DOCG by Piazzo embodies the essence of Piedmont, a region that is the cradle of Nebbiolo. This Cru of Barolo, is known for its complexity and depth. The nose eventually reveals notes of toasted oak, roasted coffee, and tobacco. The dense palate offers flavors of roasted coffee bean, prune, and licorice, accompanied by soft tannins that grip the finish. Ideal for savoring in an intimate atmosphere, perhaps accompanied by a well-cooked red meat dish or aged cheeses.

The Piazzo Comm. Armando winery was founded in the 1960s by Armando Piazzo and Gemma Veglia in San Rocco Seno d'Elvio, a hamlet in the municipality of Alba. To date, the company can count on 70 hectares of vineyards in the municipalities of Mango, Neviglie, Guarene and Novello. The winemaking philosophy respects tradition especially for the production of Barolo and Barbaresco but with particular attention to cleanliness and innovation. In the cellar, the effort is at its maximum to make the most of the raw material, fruit of the sacrifices and work carried out in the vineyard. The wines produced are the soul of the territory, they stand out for their perfumed bouquets on the nose, with great body and structure but balanced and elegant on the palate.
