Braida – La Regina Nascetta

R320.00

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.
TASTING NOTES
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 flavour sensations ranging from fruity to savoury. This is why it has been compared to the great white wines of the Rhine.
Great aperitif, ideal paired with raw fish, white meats and fresh cheeses.
