2015 Monsecco "Pratogrande" Nebbiolo Colline Novaresi
/ Single Bottle
Here, the grand Nebbiolo takes center stage, a wine made exclusively from this noble grape from vineyards outside of Gattinara and Ghemme. Manual harvest occurs normally during the second half of October. The Zanetta family gives this wine a shorter maceration than it applies to the Gattinara but then the wine is aged in large (15 hectoliter) “botte” for two years before bottling and then left to age an additional year before being released to the market. It is a fine and elegant wine with subtle tannins, bright cherry flavors and a persistent finish that again emphasizes the complex mineral composition of the underlying soils.
