Nascetta

Giacomo Bologna

Sierre dei Fiori La Regina Nascetta 2019

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.

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! — 7 months ago

Borea Langhe Nascettta 2015

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.

Anas-Cëtta Langhe Bianco Nascetta di Novello 2017

I just was discussing this wine with a friend who was asking what it was like. My answer was if you combined Vermentino with Rhône white grapes. It has all the herbal/floral character of the Rhône’s, but much higher acid & tension. Cogno handles this beautifully and it is a true pleasure to drink. — a month ago

Along with Timorasso one of the great white wine grapes of the region. I much prefer it to Roero

Langhe Nascetta 2019

9.3

Nascetta is lovely niche grape of the Langhe. I adore it. Nose is lavender, very floral, like a Crabtree and Evelyn store. Some apple, pear and fantastic spice. Super aromatic. Sweet Meyer lemon and sweet citrus as well. Palate is terrific fruit, lemon, lime, grapefruit, intense rocky mineralIty that reminds me of Germany and terrific depth. Great structure and very dry. Great mouthfeel and superbly mineral. Like really really mineral. Some citrus pith. But while being mineral it has a great mouthfeel. Super juicy and racy. Love this. — 6 months ago

È! Orange Nascetta Blend

Like the Calcarius CA wines, this liter beats expectations. It’s my first of the E!‘s from Cellario and it’s surprisingly delicate and tame for a wine named Orange. It pours a hazy yellow and has pretty aromatics of spiced ginger, apricot, peaches, and flowers. 5 days of skin in amphora pits this somewhere between light and viscous and maybe both at once. — 6 months ago

Italy gets serious about mineral white wines

Nose has a bit of richness. Apricot pit ?

Palate is delicious. Good fruit. So mineral. Juicy.

Bought from fass selections.
