2019 Ellena Giuseppe Nascetta Langhe DOC


Very popular until the end of the 1800’s when it was basically abandoned, it was rediscovered in the last decade and still there are only ten hectares throughout the world. Fermented in cool tanks and left on lees for nine months. Lovely floral aromas and pear and melon palate with a great mineral finish.


Located in La Mora, Piedmont, the 15 hectare farm is comprised of five hectares of vines, the rest being hazelnuts and woodlands. In the family for 50 years there are three generations, Francesco, his son Giuseppe and the grandson Matteo are all involved in the vine growing. All indigenous yeast fermentations with soft vinification for the young wines and long and traditional skin contact for Nebbiolo.

“Intense nascetta with sweaty spice, coconut, dried grass and flowers. Some dried peach and apricot on the medium palate add a little sweetness, before it returns to the more savory elements on the finish, leaving an aftertaste of smoky bacon. A bit wild, but hard not to like. Drink now. 91 Points.”

“A white with waxy lemon and dried-papaya character. It’s full-bodied with lots of fruit and flavor. Oily finish, but the ripe fruit remains intact and lively. Drink now. 91 Points.”
