Nebbiolo d’Alba

Controlled Designation of Origin

Nebbiolo is certainly the most aristocratic Piedmontese grape variety. Its cultivation is perhaps the one that requires the greatest specialization, not by chance it is the first to blossom in spring and the last to be harvested. Teo Costa family has always had a special attention for this noble vine. The vineyard of production called “Bric Costa”, is one of the best in the area, both for the exposure (south west) and for the mineral complexity of the soil.
