- Cantine Garrone produces a monovarietal Prünent (Nebbiolo) from vines averaging about 60-80 years old (many on original rootstock). They also make a superb wine called ‘Ca’ d’Mate’ which is Nebbiolo blended with 15-20% Croatina, whose vines average over 40 years old.
Garrone’s wines are aromatic, elegant, and expressive – an absolute joy for any fans of Alto-Piedmont Nebbiolo. High-altitude wines at their best.
