This vintage of our Nebbiolo - of which we only have 92 vines - was only 88 cases to start. As it was aged in mostly neutral American Appalachian oak barrels, it is a lighter style of Nebbiolo. If you have visited Northern Piedmont in Italy, you will find Nebbiolo with a wide range of styles - from sparkling to deep, opaque reds like those common further south in Barolo. This wine is very similar to a ligther-colored Nebbiolo from Northern Piedmont, yet it retains both a tart acidity and some structured tannins. Aging may darken this wine, and mellow it somewhat, but it is currently a refreshingly acidic and tart red - cranberry and cherry flavors - tasty at room temperature or with a slight chill, and easily paired with many types of food.


This wine has been entered into multiple competitions in 2024, as it was released in late 2023. Results are pending!
