Grape: Nebbiolo (clone Rosé)
Controcorrente 2022 IGT - Vaira Aurelj is a fantastic red wine from Piedmont, made with 100% Nebbiolo grapes of the Rosé clone. The vineyards are over 22 years old and grow on calcareous clay soil. After careful manual harvesting, the grapes are partially crushed with stalks to create a unique flavor profile, which varies from vintage to vintage.
The result is a mid-structured wine with notes of wild cherry, rosehip and warm spice, wrapped in firm tannins and a long crunchy finish.
Perfectly paired with grilled meats, aged cheeses, and hearty pasta dishes.
Controcorrente is a red wine that embodies the philosophy of its creators - two brothers who believe in making wine that is a direct reflection of the work done in the vineyard.
With no chemical interference and a focus on simple transformation of grapes into wine, the end result is a product that is of the highest quality.
