It is known that Nebbiolo is the common grape of the great red wines of Piedmont. It is the natural foundation to aspire to the Barolo and Barbaresco from Langhe, the land from where the wine we tested today, a pure Nebbiolo, called “Aiman”, is born.

Being one of the most prized grapes on the Italian peninsula, with Nebbiolo, the historic winery Piazzo wanted to obtain a true standard bearer of quality and, in some respects, innovation with its Nebbiolo “Aiman”.

Aiman in the dialect of the area means softness, characteristics. And this aspect is very well represented in this wine which presents itself to the eye with very slight garnet notes in its characteristic ruby red.

On the nose it is full and enveloping: elegantly spicy notes reflect the aromas of red fruit, currants and berry jams. However, it is on the palate that it harmoniously combines with the olfactory hints, giving a very captivating completeness of style.

Its passage for a few months in large barrels actually gave it that silky and fresh elegance of a Nebbiolo that will have something interesting to tell for many years to come.

Piazzo winery offers consumers this little wine jewel, very suitable for dishes where it can be enhanced in minerality and frankness, from mountain cheeses to meat ravioli, the structure of this Nebbiolo will enhance the quality raw materials.

Company Profile

The Piazzo winery was Armando Piazzo and Gemma Veglia’s drea, who in the 1960s decided to stay and believe in their land, the Langhe of “La Malora” by Fenoglio. The far-sighted and counter-current idea of investing in the main grape variety, Nebbiolo, turns out to be a winning one. Today the company has 70 hectares of owned vineyards of which 60% is cultivated with Nebbiolo. The winery, led by daughter Marina together with her husband Franco and sons Simone and Marco, has a representative range of typical wines: modern classics, a refined tradition and increasingly attentive to environmental sustainability.
