Anas-Cëtta Nascetta di Novello Langhe DOC
The Wine Advocate
This is a very interesting wine. On first nose, the 2018 Langhe Nascetta del Comune di Novello Anas-Cëtta offers a touch of smoke and bacon fat that comes as a bit of a surprise. You might expect a lean and inconsequential white, but this expression of the delicate and somewhat uncommon Nascetta grape (that this estate has championed over the years) delivers much more intensity and momentum than you might initially expect. That bacon fat is followed by campfire ash and ripe fruit. This is a great one for connoisseurs of lesser-known Italian varieties.
