The Vigna Cicala has an average age of 40-45 years and the plants replant from time to time. The main variety of Nebbiolo is the Lampia and the rootstock is rupestris du Lot.
Red with transparent, almost rusty edges.
At the nose aromas of leather, vanilla bean, sweet rose petal perfume, damson plum/prune, and citrus peel.
Palate is tight, fresh, and high-acid, with well-delineated flavors of leather/rawhide, sour red cherry and cherry skin, and dry anise and oregano notions.
