List of products by brand Altare Nicholas

Nicholas Altare is a young thirty year old man from Dogliani. His family is from Dogliani, his father has always had a farm and has always produced wine, sometimes in bulk, others bottling it. He is trained oenologically by his "mentor" Ferdinando Principiano in Monforte d'Alba, where he still continues to work following both the agronomic and the cellar parts. In 2013 he decided to carry on his father's project, and began to work on the family vineyards and to vinify them right in Monforte, in Principiano's winery. Only in 2019 he complete the work in his cellar and start all the vinification on site. Nicholas is working in  the vineyard with his father and grandfather, who help him at all times of the work. The company was born producing only one wine, the Dogliani DOCG, while Barbera and Nebbiolo have now been introduced.

Langhe Nebbiolo 2017 by Nicholas Altare was the first vintage produced. Nicholas is very happy of the result of this wine, which despite having a slightly more drained color, perhaps also due to the young age of the vineyard, expresses freshness and drinkability, accompanied by hints of violet, ash, licorice and a hint of tobacco

Write down this name, Nicholas Altare. This Dogliani DOCG is a more drinkable interpretation of the designation. Vinified in a totally natural way, it is a Dolcetto drink to drink, nice acidity, fresh red fruits, medium-bodied, which is trenched in a glup. WOW!
