2014 Nebbiolo, Luna Matta Vineyard
Our Nebbiolo pays homage to the Great wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It matures for about 24 months in oak and over 6 months in bottle prior to release. It is well structured and built to age. Utilizing a lengthy post-fermentation maceration on its skins, its formidable tannin is refined to a cellar-worthy, yet immediately approachable profile. Ten vintages in, our Nebbiolo at Luna Matta Vineyard has hit its stride. Constant attention to these vines over so many harvests gives Stephy a one-of-a-kind perspective on this rather unique location. The soils mirror those of great properties in Piedmont, and as the vines age we are seeing more and more Nebbiolo character emerge in our finished wine.

Tasting Notes
2014 was a gift. A beautiful growing season with nary a complaint in the vineyard led to our finest vintage yet. Classic, unmistakable Nebbiolo aromatics of dried flowers, earth, spice and tar compete with beautifully restrained fruit. Burgundy-like seductive cherry and fresh berry notes entice, followed by generous echoes of the same on the palate.
