Nebbiolo takes centre stage whilst supported by a chorus of local varieties. This is Nebb with a shot of adrenalin straight to the heart.

Angelo Sega and his sons Matteo and Luca are based in the Valtellina Alps of Lombardy, where their seven hectares of vines are dedicated to the famed Nebbiolo, and the less famed but equally impressive Rossola, Rossolino Rosa, Brugnola and Negrera. They consider themselves protectors of the region and its viticultural history.
