2015 Reserve Nebbiolo, Camporelli Vineyard 1.5L Magnum
Gold Medal - SF Chronicle
2015 is the first year we made Nebbiolo and there is only a handful of acres planted in Sonoma County. It is an exciting grape to work with because it is so unique. It is a late ripening grape and is always the last vineyard we pick. It needs extensive aging to soften the structure and acidity. Nebbiolo is not for the impatient but it's worth the wait!
Bright cranberry, cherry, jam, rose hip, pepper, and anise.
Only 6 Magnums bottled!
Our first vintage of this unique variety. The tannin and acid structure naturally occurring in this grape variety make it necessary to age for about two years in the barrel to soften and mellow before bottling.
