Imagine finding yourself in a centuries-old cellar, where the wood of the barrels whispers stories of past harvests. This is where Rosso Alpi Retiche Sorel IGT by Pietro Nera is born. Produced in Lombardy, in the specific region of Chiuro, this wine is a perfect blend of Nebbiolo and Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes grow in vineyards that can be defined as examples of "heroic viticulture," where each cluster is a testament to hard work and passion. Its maturation in French oak barrels gives it an unmistakable character. At first glance, the wine presents itself with a deep ruby red color. On the nose, you perceive notes of ripe red fruits, spices, and a touch of vanilla. In the mouth, the complexity unfolds in layers: first the fruits, then the spices, and finally a lingering aftertaste that invites another sip. Ideal for an elegant dinner, it pairs splendidly with red meats, aged cheeses, and traditional Italian dishes.
