Silvio Giamello Langhe Nebbiolo "Villa Gentiana" 2015
This Nebbiolo comes from the same vineyard as the Vicenziana and also qualifies for the Barbaresco D.O.C., but Silvio declassifies it to keep the two wines distinct. He divides the two based purely on tastings, but the Langhe Nebbiolo generally comes from the lower part of the slope, which is slightly cooler and was planted more recently. Farming is traditional, meaning they use methods that have been passed down from generation to generation.
Winemaking: temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel lasts about 10 days, then aged about 10 months, part in tonneaux of 5 hectoliters and part in Slavonian oak botti of 20-30 hectoliters
