“Carteria” Valt. Sup. Riserva DOCG (2015), Sandro Fay - Lombardia
Grape : Chiavennasca (Nebbiolo).
Carteria is the finest cru of Fay's superb range of single vineyard Nebbiolo, made with a selection of the best Nebbiolo grape in the Carteria zone. Located at 450 metres above sea level, the cool climate and intense sunshine mean the wine is intensely concentrated yet with a cool backbone of elegant acidity. The nose opens with pronounced red berries, rose and spice. Fermented for 12 months in 30 Hl oak casks and 500 Lt barrels and aged another 15 months in a bottle before release.
Food Pairing : Wonderful acidity and elegant tannins make this a fantastic wine for a variety of dishes whether it be Veal, chicken, or red pasta. We recommend opening this wine an hour before enjoying it.
