Region : Langhe, Piedmont, Tuscany
Varietal: 100% Nebbiolo
Tasting Notes: Garnet red in color, this wine offers an expressive floral nose with notes of red berries, plums, licorice and spices. It reflects the essence of the Cerequio terroir: sumptuous texture and a very refined character with perfectly integrated tannins. On the palate, the pure essence of Cerequio leads to ripe and juicy fruit notes such as red cherry and red currant. Silky tannins and the bright acidity bring a harmonious and remarkable balance to this wine.
Conteisa is especially suited for braised meat courses with sauces or concentrated red wines reductions. Additionaly, this wine goes extremely well with fat cheeses with medium intensity (like a good Taleggio, a mature Toma, Robbiola, Raschera, Sora or even French cheeses like St. Nécatire, Reblochon etc). If you use excellent domestic cheeses, try to find similar.
