A local tradition wants Nebbiolo d’Alba made in the area on the right side of Tanaro river, near Alba, between the Barolo and Barbaresco areas. There, Nebbiolo maintains a good round body, even if soft, delicate and with little tannin. Cumot is a pleasant and long-lived wine in fact it keeps its bouquet of fruits and vanilla. It reaches maturity after about 18 months in small oak barrels. It’s perfect with rich meat and game dishes, such as braised hare. Excellent with matured cheeses from the Cuneo Alps, such as Raschera and Castelmagno.
