Cascina Ghercina Langhe Nebbiolo
Aged in oak for 12 months, and a further 2 months in bottle for refinement, this Nebbiolo Langhe D.O.C from Cascina Ghercina is a deceiving and delicious wine; the light ruby colour hides a wine that is both rich in texture and flavour.
With a spicy nose (cinnamon, caramel and vanilla) upon opening, the aroma lingers of forest fruits and buttery notes. On the palate you’ll find persistence of wild strawberries.
We enjoy this wine for its elegance and balanced tannins. Works super well with meat stews, mature cheese and rich vegetarian dishes.
This expression of Nebbiolo Langhe D.O.C from Cascina Ghercina is a truly elegant drop. It hold romantic nostalgia due to its namesake. To drink this wine is to (for a moment) stroll through the misty mountains of the Langhe wine region of Piemonte.
This wine traditionally pairs to noble foods such as duck, prime rib, well-made sausages and pork shank, however vegetable dishes are fantastic ‘food mates’ when approached with the twist of regional Mediterranean flavours. Think Eggplant parmigiana, Pasta ‘alla Norma’, stuffed and baked capsicum, or roasted veggies with a rosemary and garlic sauce.
