Agamium is Latin for Ghemme. The Nebbiolo grapes for this wine are hand-harvested in October from the vineyards of Carella, Baraggiola an Valera. Upon arrival at the winery they are destemmed and delicately pressed. A short maceration on the skins, then the juice is transferred to stainless steel tanks where is goes through primary fermentation and malolactic. Once complete the wine is transferred to Slavonian oak (60 hl) for 12 months. 

Tasting notes

"The 2018 Nebbiolo Colline Novaresi Agamium is a terrific introduction to these wines. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berry fruit, mint and orange peel are beautifully delineated. The 2018s is vinous and fresh, but it also has plenty of depth too. All the elements are impeccably balanced." 91 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (September 2020)
