Tenuta Il Cascinone Avamposti Altrove 2019

Vignale Monferrato, Alessandria, Piedmont, ItalyFrom Tenuta Il Cascinone, in hilly Monferrato, this nebbiolo is rooted in clay soils of the lower slopes, planted in 2005 in the small Soliti plot. After 2 weeks on skins, this is fermented in stainless and rested 2 years in oak (75% botti / 25% barriques). Pouring a lighter crimson hue, this lifted red teems with wildflowers, perfumed plum, ripe wild blueberry, and ample fine salinity. Tannins are slight and sticky, hugging this through a lightly spiced finish. Tastes much lighter than its 14.5% would suggest, this is a charming nebbiolo for enjoying now.Tasted: 20 November 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
