Langhe Nascetta 2019
Here’s a real rarity. Nascetta is a floral white grape from northern Italy that nearly went extinct while the region was focusing on red wines. Over the years a few dedicated producers, like Franco Conterno, have worked to revive and replant this almost lost grape variety. This vibrant Nascetta comes from the commune of Novello and it pops with rich aromas of orange blossom, honey, pineapple, banana and other exotic fruits. It makes a killer aperitif, so that you can just bask in its unique glory, but it also pairs well with Vietnamese curry, korma, Thai sweetcorn cakes, summer salads and fish dishes.
In the hamlet of Bussia di Monforte d’Alba, you’ll discover Cascina Sciulun – a historic Piedmont farmhouse and home to the Conterno family. Pietro Conterno planted their first Nebbiolo, before passing the business to Giacomo, who in turn handed it on to Franco and his two sons Daniele and Andrea. The vegan-friendly wines that they create, which have been certified organic since 2015, are world-class reflections of the area’s exceptional terroir.
