If the producers of Nascetta - the only native white grape variety of the Langhe - are few, those who have chosen to preserve the vines of this semi-known and less lucrative vine in Novello, common in the Barolo area where Nascetta has origins can be counted on the fingers of one hand: Luca Marenco is one of these, and he bets on a precious variety. Nascetta is a semi-aromatic grape that gives life to a wine withherbaceous notes of sage and rosemary rich and mineral, of great flavor, where one glass calls the other. A versatile wine to be drunk young throughout the meal, or aged a few years to let it express all its hidden complexity. This Nascetta ages in steel from start to finish; a wine that just needs to be accompanied because everything else is already written in its DNA.
Variety: Nascetta 100%
Don't be fooled by age: Luca is very young, but his vision is anything but immature or improvised. Heir to a familiar wine tradition in Barolo and Novello, Luca got involved by launching wines that have his name but which are faithful spokespersons of the territory in which he was born and raised. Pulling up his sleeves and getting his hands dirty, he breeds and transforms native varieties by integrating traditional savoir-faire with innovation, using cutting-edge sustainable techniques and equipment both in the vineyard and in the cellar. Its wines are good and honest, direct and convivial, capable of clearly translating the territory and the vintage from which they come. This is his first vintage on the market, and we have secured a good supply of it. A gamble? It sounds more like a certainty to us!!
