Sibanè Piemonte DOC Rosso 2016
In 2015, one of the best vintages ever in Piedmont, Alessio wanted to experiment with another blend to go with Cabanè Langhe Rosso (produced by Cabernet Sauvignon, Barbera, and Nebbiolo). Thinking of a warmer wine than Cabanè, with softer tannins, Alessio decided to replace Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah, coming up with Sibanè. The rustic Piedmontese origins of Sibané are proudly showcased by Barbera and Nebbiolo, while the more cosmopolitan personality is the result of Syrah. Sibané is a complex, enveloping, and full-bodied wine with high, but well-balanced, alcohol content. The color is an intense ruby red with violet reflections. Spicy and fruity notes stand out, in particular plum, black pepper, and black currant.
