Antoniolo. Coste della Sesia Nebbiolo 'Juvenia'

  • 1890


Coste delle Sesia DOC
Grape Nebbiolo

2017
A little deeper than usual, 2017 was a warm vintage and this has some spice and smoke on the nose, the fruit is rich and floral with rose, damson and black cherry fruit.  More mini-Gattinara than Coste della Sesia.

Producer: Antoniolo

This is a pure Nebbiolo made from the young vines of the estate’s vineyards, all of which fall within the Gattinara DOCG. The thinking behind Juvenia is to make a good red wine that is ready to drink as soon as it is released; for the fruit to be open and typical of other Antoniolo wines, whilst at the same time being affordable enough to enjoy on a regular basis.
The Nebbiolo is harvested by hand alongside the fruit for the Gattinara and is sorted before being left to a spontaneous fermentation in steel tanks, then it is aged in steel for another year and a half before being bottled, and then aged for another year before its release.

old notes

2016
Unforced Nebbiolo fruit with fine tannins gently gripping rose petal and dark berry fruit flavours. A charming, classic mineral wine which is drinking beautifully now and will continue to evolve with grace.  13.5%
