2021 Nebulina (Magnum - 1.5L)
Notes from the legendary importer - Giorgio Di Maria.
A collaboration wine between Benotti Rosavica and Giorgio De Maria Fun Wines in Langhe. Benotti Rosavica is a tiny producer whom I met via our common friend Olek Bondonio (this is a wine Olek has been sipping for a while). The vineyards are in Roero, most precisely in Priocca and Govone; here the soils are sandier, giving wines with less structure and more perfumes than Barolo & Barbaresco, ideal to be consumed younger. I was on a hunt of un-oaked Nebbiolo for long time and I felt like winning the lottery when I have found Nebiulina. We decided to name it Nebiulina to celebrate an historical style of Nebbiolo consumed young in these hills. This label is an ongoing collaboration project Giorgio De Maria x Benotti-Rosavica, exclusive to Australia. As per usual friend and gifted artist Gianluca Cannizzo captured the essence of this wine with this beautiful image of a woman.
