2017 Rocche Costamagna Riccardo Nebbiolo DOC (Langhe, ITA)
“First and foremost I produce wine that I like, and the style of the wine must respect the grapes and its terroir. I look to create wine with elegance first, and then power. The terroir is the foundation and the wine is reflective of our team’s choices in the vineyard and in the winery. The wine is made by hand and grapes are vinified separately to ensure the terroir of each vineyard parcel is preserved.” – Alessandro Locatelli owner of Rocche Costamangna.
