The Piedmontese term Aiman recalls softness and fluffy sensations which, in this case, caress the palate in a new and (re)fined sip.
The new 2020 vintage presents the Langhe Nebbiolo in a partially renewed style and concept: the varietal aromas of flowers and fruits remain intense and fine, enhanced by the fermentation at low temperatures.
The real news is the aging in large vats: the tannins soften and are well integrated in an elegant and soft sip liven up by the typical freshness of Nebbiolo.
