Ca' de Lion was founded in 1871 by Luigi Ghione. The winery takes the name of the family ancestor, Leone Ghione (1655). Generations of expertise in Piemonte has elevated this artisanal producer to its highest level ever. Farming sustainably and naturally, the wines from this estate show a purity of flavor. The depth and nuance of the wines vibrates and speaks of the place where they come from in the hills of Canelli.
Blend: 40% Barbera, 40% Nebbiolo, 20% Dolcetto
Tasting Notes: Violet and rose notes with a black cherry fruity taste. Electric balance between acidity and freshness, with smoothe, elegant tannins.
Serve with a light chill. The wine can be decanted 30 minutes prior to serving. And, it will improve over the next 3-5 years.
