2014 Amato Vino Nebbiolo

$40.00

The king of grapes in the Piedmonte region of north-west Italy. This is all tarry florals and spice, sweet red-fruits and firm, yet fine tannins. Seductive and sensual – it really is very, very moreish. Best with food.

Description

The greatest grape? Some say so, especially the Italians from north-west Italy (Piedmonte to be precise).

Bright ruby/cherry red colour. Spice and florals – violets, sweet/savoury herbs – lead to earth, game and some truffle. Also shows tarry blackberry and redfruits cherry and rhubarb, licorice and a slight smoky hint.

The palate is medium-­bodied, warm and generous. Spicy redfruits abound – cherry, rhubarb, some prune and blackcurrant. Eastern spices of clove and cardamom round it out. These crunchy fruit flavours and textures lead to the classic crunchy acid/tannin flesh‐out on the back palate. An Italian classic wine style, firmly structured, yet approachable in its youth. Best enjoyed with food.

20% whole bunch ferment, on skins for 24 days. Matured in aged French oak for 18 months, unfined & unfiltered. Only 75 dozen made from a single vineyard site near Yallingup.

    Stern and tannic but with leathery, tar-like, herb-inflected fruity aplenty. Authority, integrity, call it what you will; this has it. 93 Points

    Interesting proposition, growing Nebbiolo in Margaret River, but you never know ’till you’ve tried.

    Sweet cherry, mint and nougat with a touch of spice. It’s medium bodied, supple and slippery, with jubey and minty red fruit and cherry, and the taste of nougat throughout. Acidity is nicely settled and tannin is thick, powdery and sticky, but soft. Finish is pretty good too. Has a candied sort of flavour – like raspberry yoghourt – that some bottle age should knock out. 90 Points

    This is a single vineyard wine that’s been 20 percent whole bunch fermented and left 24 days on skins. The result is that it has picked up beautifully ripe and integrated tannins with a textural completeness that is so necessary with this variety. Savoury and chocolaty with that savoury sinewy fell extended to the long finish. Excellent. 94 Points
