Just our second Nebbiolo to be released, this is the first vintage that was exclusively from the Luna Matta Vineyard, whereas the 2006, 2007 & 2008 were blended with fruit from the Glen Rose Vineyard.  As you may recall we released the 2006 a couple of years ago and felt it was time to get the 2009 into your mouths. The 2011 is starting to taste great and we will probably release it pretty soon. This is also the wine that began our journey utilizing extra-extended maceration… 9 months on the skins for one of the lots used in this wine.

 

Tasting Note:

Black cherry, red raspberries, Asian spices, and sandalwood frame the red roses and other exotic floral tones.  Medium bodied and intense this is classic Nebbiolo, the spice, fruit and fine grain tannins all work together in harmony.  Ready to drink now with Rabbit Sugo Pappardelle or a classic Bistecca.
