17 Langhe Nascetta 2017

Thought I’d start #drinksatantonios with this white wine made from Nascetta by Diego Conterno in Monforte d’Alba. It’s a luminous green-gold and has refreshing aromatics with grapefruit and other citrus fruit to the fore. It’s rounded out by lightly toasted almonds and it’s fresh on the palate but with nice weight and body. A really good example of this little known grape! — a year ago

Langhe DOC Nascetta 2017

9.1

Nose is a bit neutral, maybe some oil? Some mineral. As another commenter said, kind of like a weaker Viognier. It’s got a unique nose for sure. Lemon. Never smelled anything like it. Palate is oily and rich with nice acidity. Earthy and very mineral. No fruit really. This is Italy’s answer the N. Rhone whites. Good concentration. Really dry. We will see if it opens. More interesting than good. But good enough.

UPDATE DAY 2. - this is much better with more juiciness and fruit. Very complex and very delicious. From 8.9 to 9.1.

Langhe Nascetta 2019

Nose is huge florals and tropical fruit.

Palate is tropical fruit. Some minerality.

As this opens imagine like the best early season apricots with lovely tartness. Delicious. Very distinctive. Less pineapple / guava. Pure apricot as it opens.

Some wild internal aromatics. Fermented honey???

Finish is unusual. Apricot skin ?

Really a wine you want to own. Not the most complex but very different. With lobster or fois gras would be amazing.

my first nascetta.

bottle was emptied by a hungry and thirsty family before you could say:
'they make white wine in langhe? '

cream, blossom, citrus variety, pear and some spice.

🇮🇹 whites tingle my heart and mind again.

An indigenous white from Langhe, I think this is my first time trying Nascetta. In the Nebbiolo dominated Piedmont, that’s not surprising. My Barolo meter is well tuned. My Nascetta palate.... not so.

I’m blown away here, though. This bottle is shockingly sharp with a creamy twist at the end that harmonizes the intense tropical fruits with a (non-sweet) honey glaze.

It’s that moment in the evening when you sit down on the couch after a long productive day. Self satisfied comfort wine.
