Nebbiolo is another of our Italian varietals grown in the same region as Barbera, but the two wines couldn’t be more opposite. While Barbera has great colour and soft tannins and a lighter body, Nebbiolo is very light in colour, has huge tannins and a fullness on the palate much bigger than it would seem at first glance. It does have a natural high acidity although nothing like that of the Barbera. The fruit was hand plunged in open vessels and spent a little extra time on skins than our other varietals to help soften the tannins slightly. It was then pressed into aged oak to allow the natural micro-oxygenation to help round out the edges.
TASTING NOTES: Pale mahogany in colour with notes of licorice, tar and a hint of florals over fresh berries. On the palate the palpable tannins are satisfyingly balanced with fleshy stonefruit characters. A wine completely different to the usual, more well-known varietals but every bit as elegant and refined and enjoyable to drink.
SUGGESTED FOODS: Serve Nebbiolo with braised short ribs, beef roasts, aged cheeses and anything that involves truffles.
