Young and humble Paolo Veglio tends the vines at his micro-estate in Barbaresco. Paolo’s family has owned the estate since 1920, but he is the first of the family to be a winemaker and bottle his own wines. Before this, his family was selling the grapes of the estate to his neighbour Giacosa from 1990-2005.
Light ruby colour with notes of cherry, rose and a red berry nose. Attractive body which is on the lighter side for Nebbiolo but with great poise. Enticing spicy finish.
