We originally found the wines of Leandnbsp;Pianeandnbsp;through their dynamic Boca bottling, a structured and long livedandnbsp;Nebbioloandnbsp;from Alto Piemonte.andnbsp; Recently, and much to our delight, we discovered theirandnbsp;Maggiorinaandnbsp;bottling. An homage to the traditionalandnbsp;overhead vine training style common in the area, this is a blend ofandnbsp;Nebbiolo and twelve other local grape varieties painstakingly preserved over the generations. The wines show much darker and deeper fruit thanandnbsp;Nebbioloandnbsp;would alone, butandnbsp;it still captures the freshness and juicy character associated with a lighterandnbsp;Langheandnbsp;Nebbiolo. A joy to drink with just enough structureto stand up to richer foods.

Wonderful field blend! You can smell and taste the mix of Croatina on the front end and Nebbiolo on the finish. Great wine at a great price!
