Nascetta is a white grape grown around Novello in Piemonte Italy. It is considered to produce the most complex, ageable white wine of the region thanks to its densely complex fruit and spice aromas and texture.
Nascetta presents an incredible cluster of stone and tropical fruits, fine herbs, and river pebble minerality. Flavors include grapefruit pith, juicy mango, and tarragon. It’s part Riesling, part Chenin Blanc, part white Rhone, part Sémillon: alive, tightly packed, and clearly ageable. The ripe fruit notes now will undoubtedly turn to honey, dried fruit, and pecan with a few years of aging. Full body, clear acidity, with a smooth texture at first that gives way to a fine grainy mouthfeel as it dissipates on the finish.
This wine is perfect for most any shellfish dish, but is also great for any lighter meal.
