Prunotto Nebbiolo Occhetti
Nebbiolo / 2013
The Occhetti vineyard is about 825 feet above sea level with a south-southwestern exposure and sandy soils stratified with layers of gravel and of clayey sands. The Nebbiolo grown there has a unique quality. The grapes are pressed and maceration extends for 10 days. The wine is aged partly in 60 gallon oak barrels used twice previously. This shows elegant rose, red berry fruit and licorice character with full body, excellent balance, a lush mouth feel and a long finish. A ruby red of good intensity tending towards garnet, elegant in aroma with notes of raspberries, roses, and liquorice, the wine is full and balanced in flavor with a lengthy aftertaste. The Nebbiolo Occhetti, being such a round and elegant wine, is very versatile and a perfect match for hot antipasti, first courses and light meat dishes.
