Djarmai 2016 Coste della Sesia Spanna Cascina Preziosa
What a successful, yet unusual blend of local Nebbiolo (aka Spanna) with Barbera, one of the most versatile red grapes in Italy. It is reflected in the colour, which is rich deep red, tending to purple, in the body, which is firm and fresh, in the spicy bouquet, with inviting notes of flowers and red fruit, raspberry, strawberry and blackberry, nectarines and liquorice. It is dry and acidic to the palate with a finishing balsamic touch, thus easy to drink and enjoy. A great blend!
