Our Nebbiolo displays generous notes of cherry, plum and pomegranate with big berry and spice flavors and distinct earthiness.
Grown primarily in the Piemonte region of Italy, Nebbiolo is often expressed as Barolo and Barbaresco. Grapes for this wine come from our Carneros estate and Sonoma Coast vineyards. The Sonoma Coast and Carneros vineyards are blanketed with morning fog and experience a long, cool growing season. Soils are well-drained Franciscan clay-loam.
Grapes were handpicked and sorted in the vineyard, ensuring only the best grapes made it to our tanks. They were destemmed and transferred to closed top fermenters where they spent 7 days on skins to get maximum extraction and tannin development. Then they were gently pressed and transferred to barrels for 2 years of aging enabling the tannins to soften and mellow into a full and rich wine. We use 38% new American oak to enhance and embolden the natural flavors.
