Vallana is an ultra-traditional producer of fine Nebbiolos making wines from various DOCs and DOCGs in Alto Piemonte. Spanna is the local name for Nebbiolo and belongs to the regional DOC of Colline Novaresi. The wine is fermented in concrete then spends 12 months in 500L casks and further time in bottle. The wine is a robust version of Nebbiolo with dark, balsamy fruit, elegant tannins and every present bright acidity. Although the wine is immediately recognisable as Nebbiolo it is sufficiently different in texture to the wines of Langhe, being denser on the mid-palate, although you could be forgiven for mistaking this a Barolo from a softer vintage.
