2016 Nebbiolo

$50.00$600.00

The king of grapes in the 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.

Bright ruby/cherry red colour. Aromas of eastern spice, perfume and florals – jubey redfruits, violets, sweet/savoury herbs – leading to the rustic charm of earth/peat and some truffle. Also shows glazed cherry and rhubarb, licorice and a slight toffee hint.

The palate is medium-bodied, warm and generous. Spicy redfruits abound – cherry, rhubarb, some prune and choc cherry.

Eastern spices of clove and cardamom, and minerally fine tannin round it out. The juicy 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 21 days. Matured in aged French oak for 18 months, unfined & unfiltered. Only 108 dozen made from a single vineyard site near Yallingup.
