2017 Luna Matta Nebbiolo:
Vineyard: Luna Matta
Region: Adelaida district, Paso Robles, CA
Bottle Size: 750ml
Our first Nebbiolo. Grown on steep calcareous soil in our favorite Paso site, Luna Matta. Nebbiolo berries are very small and with very little color. The wines tend to have very high tannin, great acid and a beautiful aromatic profile. This wine is very true to that profile. The wine was aged in neutral French oak barrels and terra cotta allowing the fruit purity to shine.
New Release TN’s:
Date Tasted: December, 2019
Color: Pretty ruby red
Nose: Stunning racy fruit aromatics: raspberry and pluot, dragonfruit, ripe tomato, some old world peppery bramble element
Mouth: Juicy acid, fine chalky structure, medium body, vibrant berry fruit. Real winner.
- Enjoy with rustic Italian cuisine.
- Drink now and cellar for at least 5 yrs. This wine should evolve very nicely.
