Description

The colour is garnet red and this truly exquisite Nebbiolo has an ethereal, elegant fragrance, with notes of violet, maraschino cherries, hints of chocolate on the nose and final notes of spice. It’s full bodied, aristocratic, and delicate with high acidity, yet superbly balanced. Known as a baby Barolo,  the King of Italian fine wines, which is made from the same Nebbiolo grapes.

Pair with roasts,game and aged cheeses.

A landmark winery for the regions of Roero and Langa. In the countryside of Castagnito is a particular hill named Costa, mentioned in the history of the Nebbiolo vine in ancient documents; it is particularly suited for the production of a fine and elegant wine. The yield per hectare is very low, allowing for the production of a Langhe Nebbiolo of extremely high quality. For 4 – 5 days the maceration develops in stainless steel . after which the wine rests in traditional casks for six months before being bottled.

Practicing Sustainable  Vineyard Management
In order to preserve the hills’ biodiversity, Cascina Chicco has acquired hazel trees and woods in the surroundings of the vineyards. The care and safeguarding of these green areas diminishes the universal carbon footprint of the winery and functions as an intact reserve for small animals, birds and beneficial insects. To avoid land consumption and disrespecting a landscape that is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the majority of the physical winery was built buried under the hill.  We use solar panels for all energy needs. The underground construction of the cellar allows a constant temperature for ageing wines, saving energy in temperature control technology. The entire structure is considered a Class A energy category.
