2020 Braida La Regina Langhe Nascetta DOC
In dialect, the name of this wine is pronounced separating the syllables: “Nas-cëtta”. Nascetta is an old grape variety native to the Langhe and Cuneo areas. It has only recently been rediscovered and is available in just a few thousand bottles.
The wine fully expresses all the sensory characteristics of Nascetta, a semi-aromatic grape: citrus, apple, pear, acacia blossom, fresh vegetable notes, tropical fruit, hay, straw and grapefruit!
It has no fear of time, which reveals its mineral note.
As the wine ages, the nose evolves towards hydrocarbon, flinty notes, with flavor sensations ranging from fruity to savory. This is why it has been compared to the great white wines of the Rhine.
Nascetta has gained so much prestige as to earn the official acknowledgement “DOC-Langhe Nascetta”, also thanks to the studies carried out on this grape variety by the Serra dei Fiori estate in partnership with Turin’s Università Agraria, beginning particularly with “Il FIORE” Langhe Bianco, a cuvée of Chardonnay and Nascetta.
Grapes and Vineyard: Nascetta grown in vineyards planted in 1990 at Tenuta Serra dei Fiori.
Fermentation and aging take place exclusively in steel to allow the varietal characteristics to come through.
