2017 Diego Conterno Langhe Bianco Nascetta - Piedmont, Italy (750ml)
|Availability:||In stock (4)|
Nascetta is the Langhe’s only indigienous white varietal. Having almost disappeared in the wake of phylloxera and then the demand for high yielding grapes after World War II, it was only the passion of a few dedicated producers that kept it from extinction. As plantings have become more wide spread, so too have the vinification processes applied to it. There is not yet a dominant style. Organic winemaker Diego Conterno, also a native son of the region, has chosen to age in stainless steel barrels which highlights notes of exotic fruit and cherry pith. Savory minerality and fresh acidity make for a long finish. Pair with agnelotti del plin, or grilled fish.
