Nebbiolo d'Alba "Nonno Vet" DOC Massucco
The Nebbiolo from Piedmont cultivated in the Roero territory is one of the vines cultivated in both the sides of the Tanaro river in the North and in the South which permits this wine to be a synonym of quality, tradition and prestigious. The cultivation territory is extended for 25 hamlets located on both the banks. The Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC of the Massucco winery is a red wine produced only with Nebbiolo grapes. It is perfect to be aged even if this capacity depends on the cultivation area. This wine is produced in Castagnito in the Roero on South-east exposed territories which have the direct light of the sun during all the day.
