Nebbiolo d’Alba Ligabue®, Teo Costa

New

This is certainly the noblest red grape variety in Piemonte, the region itself rightly deserving its reputation as the greatest red wine area in Italy. Growing Nebbiolo is no easy task, however requiring as it does a great deal of skill and highly qualified work to grow this very special wine. It is the first variety to blossom in spring and the last to be harvested in autumn. The Costa family has always taken Nebbiolo into great consideration. Their Nebbiolo vineyard - called “Bric Costa” (Costa Hilltop) - is one of the best in the area both for its South-Western exposure and for the mineral wealth of the soil. The wine label is dedicated to the popular Italian naif painter Antonio Ligabue. At birth he was registered with his mother’s name as Antonio Costa thus providing an excellent coincidence of names and taken as a good omen
