Nascetta is a rare native white grape variety in the land of Nebbiolo. A semi-aromatic varietal known for its excellent bottle-aging potential. The local pronunciation of the variety name is NAS-CËTTA.
This wine is 100% Nascetta from vineyards located in Novello (a wild plot planted in 1963 in Ravera cru is included). The grapes undergo a slow fermentation in stainless steel at a low temperature and then are aged in steel for 8 months sur lie. This is followed by about one additional year in bottle. 6,500 bottles produced.
