La Prova Colpevole Nebbiolo 2016
Nebbiolo is a member of the ‘Uno’ collection of wines which reflect an exceptional union of grower, vineyard site and variety. Here being Mark and Peter Saturno, Macclesfield and Nebbiolo.
Nebbiolo, historically grown in Piedmont, in the north of Italy, finds an ideal home in the Longview Vineyard in Macclesfield, a warm southern sub-region of the Adelaide Hills. Tea, roses, star anise, brambles and the trademark grippy, nervy Nebbiolo palate.
Hand-picked, destemmed, wild ferment. Half spends about two months on skins and the other half approximately six. The earlier press captures some fruit and firm tannin, and the later press creates texture, silkiness and an ethereal feeling. Unfined and unfiltered. Vegan friendly 98 dozen produced. Bottled Feb 2017.
