DON GRANERIS 2018
The Langhe Nebbiolo of Cascina Gavetta takes its name from a very special person: DON GRANERIS, a priest who lived in our town at the beginning of the 20th century, remembered by everyone for his long black suit, his bad temper, his strictness but also for the progress that brought for our hills, in viticulture and in oenology.
From the vineyards that were then owned by the priest come the grapes for the Langhe Nebbiolo of Cascina Gavetta: a "stern" wine, sometimes difficult to understand and love right away, but able to reveal its full expression later.
