"Principiano’s Langhe Nebbiolo follows the house style: aromatic natural wines with a watermark of traditional Barolo Serralunga terroir. Most Langhe Nebbiolo’s are more fruit forward, but Principiano’s is aromatics-forward, with a lovely open-knit nose of flowers, red fruits, and peach. People swoon over Nebbiolo for all kinds of reasons, , but its ability to be so perfume-y is one reason you hear the most. Grapes come from declassified Barolo cru vineyards of Montagliato, Le Coste, and Boscareto, picked just a tad earlier.... Ferdinando Principiano is producing world-class elegant and natural wines, with a watermark of traditional Barolo terroir. Ferdinando started in 1993, with 7 hectares from his father and grandfather; he now owns and farms 21 hectares. All farming is uncertified organic, but he goes way beyond the normal organic practices and is obsessed with preserving or creating the conditions for biodiversity in and around his vineyards. This includes buying adjacent forests, and creating a pond at the base of his Boscareto cru that acts as a home for migratory birds, and a chorus of frogs. He works the vineyards by hand, including the use of a scythe, as we’ll see described below in a moment. All cellar work is low intervention." -PortoVino
