Langhe Nebbiolo - Starda

Langhe Nebbiolo
STARDA

Starda is a name of an ancient family of notary, after them was named an house and a small street that runs along the bottom of Serraboella. The soil of the bottom of Serraboella, more sandy and fresher gives gentle nebbiolos but preserving their superior class. From some years in the Starda the nebbiolo is not only from Serraboella but from the sandier part of Ca veja too, another famous plot we own in Alba.
