Fragrant and earthy old-school mountain nebbiolo.

Vallée d'Aoste, Italy

Caves de Donnas is a co-operative winery whose members grow nebbiolo and other traditional varieties of their alpine valley in northwest Italy. The grapes - mostly nebbiolo with a little freisa and neyret - are grown on steep terraced vineyards, fermented naturally, and aged in huge old oak barrels. It smells of tart cherries and leather, with dried roses and a bit of tar. The palate is much lighter than most nebbiolo, but with a bit of the grape's signature chewiness.
