The description

“Tense” means protected, because in 1600 the vines were guarded all year round to prevent anyone from causing damage to the grapes.

“Le Tense” wine is made from 100% Nebbiolo (Chiavennasca) grapes from the sub-zone of Sassella. After vinification on their skins, short maceration and a brief stay in steel, 25% of the wine ages in large French oak 32-57 hectolitre casks for 20 months, and the rest in French and American barriques for 4 months before marketing.

Dark, vivid ruby colour; the perfume is complex, with a persuasive raspberry jam fragrance and with recollections of wild rose and ripe amarena cherries; a full flavour, smooth but well sustained, very tasty with great elegance and harmony, with pleasant undertones of prunes and persistent spices.

Food matches

Roast red meats, lamb, kid, game and mature cheeses.
