Canavese DOC Nebbiolo
Sust, in Piedmontese, means desire, craving, but it also means “to care for”, “to have at heart”. Our Nebbiolo is an understated wine, without excesses, that makes you want to drink it. It is a wine of the Savoy region, of few words. The cultivation of Nebbiolo in this area of Piedmont requires special care and a thorough knowledge of the pedo-climatic characteristics of every land parcel cultivated. The cultivation solutions developed are the espalier system with Guyot pruning and an original cultivation system invented by Remo called “double row”.
