Poderi Elia Langhe Nebbiolo 2012
Another great wine from Small Vineyards Imports in Seattle. The wine has all the elegance of a great Nebbiolo with an intense, concentrated red fruit on the nose rolling onto the palate with vanilla from oak barrel aging. Founded in Nieve in 1890 by the owner's great grandfather, this family run winery concentrates on the local red varieties: Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto and Moscato d'Asti. The vineyards are 30 to 45 years old. Low yields and traditional methods result in complex, structured wines that are truly symbolic of the terroir.

Our Family of Winemakers
Wine itself is wonderful, but the stories of the families and artisans who make it are equally important. Who does not want to know more about the composer, painter, singer, or writer? This is why you will find a photo of the winemaker and the story of the estate on every bottle-connecting those who make the wine with those who enjoy it.
