2018 NEBBIOLO FRESCO

“I’d enjoy a fresco of the fratelli Saturno, perhaps reclining semi-naked on a triclinium, eating grapes and other assorted Roman delicacies like bear in honey.
Light, bright and red fruited with a dusting of spice, dried herb and liquorice. Tannin a playful nip, acidity fresh, the finish good and long. It’s a lovely thing to drink – halfway between a big rosato and a more traditional Nebbiolo. Frisky Fresco. I like it. Would be perfect with a bowl of wren’s nipples.” – Gary Walsh, 92 Points

"The Fresco is surprisingly approachable for a young nebbiolo, many of which take years before they drink well. It shows a floral, spice and red berry nose, cherry and strawberry fruit and savoury characters on the palate and fine tannins and clean acidity on the finish. Pair it with mushroom dishes or Mediterranean red meat dishes" - Mike Frost, 25/10/17.

2016 Nebbiolo Fresco

90 Points – Campbell Mattinson, Winefront. “It looks light but in nebbiolo terms it’s plump with flavour. It’s still identifiably nebbiolo though; there’s nothing thick or syrupy or intense here; it’s not a shiraz-wannabe. Saltbush, asphalt, dry spices and red cherry. A whisper of licorice. It’s made to be fresh and frisky but there’s tannin here; it won’t be denied. All up you’d have to say this is pretty good. It works. And both the price and the packaging work too. Perfect fodder for a wine bar. Or wine list.”
